PREFACE 

The constitution of the Fraternity provides for the is- 
suance of a General Register every ten years. The edition of 
1910 was a long advance over the semi-centennial book of 
1900, which was the first issue which attempted to give detailed 
biographical data. The work on this present volume was 
greatly simplified not only because of the data available from 
the 1910 Register but also because of the collection during the 
intervening ten years of biographical material from members 
whose data was incomplete or missing in the former book. On 
the other hand over two thousand new members joined the 
Fraternity in the last decade. Information blanks were again 
sent out to all living members and all material taken from the 
former book has been carefully edited and revised. 

Over twenty-four hundred members of the Fraternity were 
in the service of the country during the Great War, and it is 
peculiarly appropriate that this book should contain a pei'ma- 
nent record of such service. 

A general catalog of the membership of any organization 
is useful in proportion to the thoroughness of its preparation 
and the accuracy of its information. This book is offered to 
the Fraternity in the hope that it meets such test, although 
it is practically impossible to avoid all errors. Where the 
biographical data is incomplete or lacking the cause is the 
failure of some members to respond or, in the case of deceased 
members, the failure of repeated efforts to locate descendants 
or others who might give the desired information. 

Boyd Lee Spahr, Epsilon, '00, 

Grand Upsilon. 



NOTE. 

The fact that a member is deceased is denoted by a star (*). 

Members who have been transferred from one chapter to another are 
recorded only in their original chapter, the initial of the transferee chapter 
being placed in parentheses after the name of the member. 

Academic degrees are given only when known to be correct. 

The name of the institution conferring the degree is not given where 
it is the same as that of the chapter of the member. Otherwise it is given, 
in brackets. Degrees separated by a semicolon were given by different 
institutions. 

Mention of relationship has been limited to fathers and sons and to 
brothers. The names of children not members of the Fraternity have been 
omitted, as their inclusion would needlessly enlarge the book.

A History of the Government of the 
Fraternity, 1 850-1920. 



In the archives of the Grand Chapter of the Phi Kappa 
Sigma Fraternity, in the possession of the Executive Board, is 
the original Constitution of the Fraternity, written in the hand 
of Samuel Brown Wylie Mitchell, the founder, and dated Oc- 
tober 19, 1850. Many of the general expressions of this Con- 
stitution are to be found in the Constitution of the present day 
in the same words, although most of the particular provisions 
have been amended at various times. The details of the origin 
of the Alpha Chapter and, ipso facto, of the origin of the Fra- 
ternity, will be found in the history of Alpha Chapter elsewhere 
in this volume, the purpose of this sketch being to give a run- 
ning survey of the history of the Fraternity as a national or- 
ganization, and of its growth and government during the seventy 
years of its existence. 

That it was intended from the beginning by Dr. Mitchell 
and his co-founders that the Fraternity should become a 
national one is evident from the fact that one of the articles of 
the original Constitution is entitled, " Branch Societies or Chap- 
ters," in which it is provided that such chapters may be created 
in other institutions of learning upon application being made 
to the Alpha Chapter and approval by a majority of the 
whole number of the members of that chapter. It was not until 
two and a half years later, namely, on April 23, 1853, that the 
Beta Chapter was established at Princeton University. This 
was followed in quick succession by the establishment of the 
Gamma Chapter at Lafayette College, instituted December 20, 
1853; the Delta Chapter at Jefferson (now Washington and 

23 



24 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

Jefferson) College, instituted June 5, 1854; the Epsilon Chap- 
ter at Dickinson College, instituted September 5, 1854, and the 
Zeta Chapter at Franklin and Marshall College, instituted 
October 13, 1851. All of this first group of new chapters were 
located in territory contiguous to the University of Pennsyl- 
vania. There was at this time in the University a large per- 
centage of students from the Southern States, especially in the 
Medical School, from which many of the early members of 
Alpha Chapter were drawn, and it was therefore but natural 
that further expansion should be in that region, and so we find 
the next chapter erected to be Eta Chapter at the University 
of Virginia, instituted on December 31, 1854, and followed by 
the Theta Chapter at Centenary College of Louisiana on June 
1, 1855. In fact, with the exception of Iota Chapter, founded 
at Columbia College on November 10, 1855, all of the remaining 
chapters instituted prior to the Civil War were in the South. 
These were the Kappa Chapter at Emory and Henry College on 
July 1, 1856 ; Lambda Chapter at the University of North Caro- 
lina on November 12, 1856; Mu Chapter at the University of 
Louisiana (now Tulane University) on January 14, 1858; Nu 
Chapter at Cumberland University on March 18, 1859; Xi 
Chapter at the University of Mississippi on December 2, 1859 ; 
and Omicron Chapter at Centre College (now Central Univer- 
sity of Kentucky) in January, 1860. 

The original Constitution provided that whenever it should 
be deemed necessary by a majority of the whole number of 
chapters, the Alpha Chapter should call a convention to be 
held in Philadelphia to be attended by three delegates from each 
chapter. This was the only provision for many years concern- 
ing the national government of the Fraternity. Under it con- 
ventions were held until the breaking out of the Civil War. The 
powers of this convention, however, were not clearly defined, 
and there was no permanent organization such as now exists in 
tin shape of the Executive Board, which is the executive of the 
Fraternity between the sessions of the Grand Chapter. The 
conventions met from time to time and organized by the election 
of a President and Secretary and a list of Vice-Presidents, one 
from each chapter. These officers performed the usual clerical

duties during the meeting, but ceased to exist upon adjourn- 
ment. The power of a permanent executive, if such it can be 
called, was lodged in the Alpha Chapter, which, through corre- 
spondence with the other chapters, performed such functions as 
were necessary between the conventions. 

The first convention of the Fraternity was held on August 
9, 1854, at Philadelphia. Although Alpha, Beta, Gamma and 
Delta were then in existence, delegates from the first two only 
were present. Dr. Morris J. Asch, of Alpha, presided, with 
William M. McKeen, of Alpha, as Secretary. The minutes of 
this meeting are very brief and disclose little of importance. 
Indeed, the second convention, held a year and a half later, was 
for many years regarded as the first convention. The fact, 
however, that one was held in 1854 has been established by the 
discovery in 1909 of the original minutes. 

The second convention assembled at the call of the Alpha 
Chapter on January 10 and 11, 1856, at the United States 
Hotel in Philadelphia. There were then nine chapters in exist- 
ence, of which five were present and four absent. Dr. Asch 
was elected President and Dr. Mitchell, Secretary. The most 
interesting feature connected with this convention was the 
amendment to the Constitution requiring that in the creation 
of new chapters the unanimous consent of all the chapters must 
be given. While there is no positive evidence, it is probable that 
prior to this time new chapters were created by the action of 
Alpha Chapter alone. It was further provided that the char- 
ters of new chapters should be issued by the Alpha Chapter in 
the name of the Fraternity. At this convention originated the 
custom of the annual delivery of an oration and a poem. The 
orator was Stacy Gardner Potts, Jr., of Beta, and the poem 
was prepared by Henry Hudnall, of Eta, and read in his 
absence. This convention also directed the publication of a 
Phi Kappa Sigma Song Book, which never materialized. The 
reports given by the chapters in this and the succeeding con- 
ventions show that most of the chapters were existing sub rosa, 
due to faculty opposition, which in some institutions took the 
aggressive form of requiring upon entrance an oath directed 
against joining Greek Letter Societies. Apparently no Phi 



26 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

Kap of that day had the slightest compunction in breaking this 
oath, for the more stringent the opposition the more the chap- 
ters flourished. An example of this is on record at Epsilon 
Chapter, where the facult}', learning the names of the members, 
called upon them to disband under penalty of expulsion. The 
latter, seeing a loophole through which to escape, readily agreed, 
but as nothing was said against reorganization, as readily reor- 
ganized. 

The third convention was held on December 22-23, 1856, 
at the rooms of the Alpha Chapter in Philadelphia. There 
were then eleven chapters, of which all were represented except 
Lambda. Frank S. Findla}', of Epsilon, was elected President 
and Edmund C. Pechin, of Alpha, Secretary. Stacy Gardner 
Potts, Jr., of Beta, delivered a poem and Dr. Mitchell was the 
orator. Concerning his oration, the minutes state : " Dr. 
Samuel Brown Wylie Mitchell was then introduced by the Presi- 
dent and proceeded to deliver his oration, which was vigorous, 
beautiful and eloquent, and while it riveted the attention of his 
hearers throughout, did not fail to elicit frequent remarks of 
approbation." At this convention a sinking fund was origi- 
nated, which in a small way was the forerunner of the present 
Endowment Fund. It was doomed, however, to early failure 
and two years later, only a small amount having been collected, 
it was directed that the fund be disbanded and the money 
returned to the donors. 

It should be here noted that in 1857 the idea of a publica- 
tion was conceived and resulted in the appearance in March of 
that year of the Phi Kappa Sigma Magazine, edited by Edmund 
C. Pechin, Samuel Dickson and J. Leighton McKim, all of 
Alpha Chapter. It was not printed, but written in long hand 
and read at the chapter meetings. At least seven different 
issues appeared. Truly prophetic was the editorial of the 
original issue, written by Brother Pechin, which stated, " Those 
who have originated this Magazine have sought to look beyond 
the future, and hopefully believe that the day will come when a 
paper edited and published by Phi Kaps shall be furnished to 
every member of the Fraternity. We may run the risk of being 
visionary, but it is quite within the range of possibility." 



HISTORY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FRATERNITY. 27 

Forty-four years later this dream has realized in the shape of 
the Phi Kappa Sigma News Letter. 

The fourth convention assembled at Gautier's Hotel, Wash- 
ington, D. C.j on December 28-29, 1858, having been postponed 
for one year on account of the then prevailing financial depres- 
sion. Eight of the twelve chapters were represented. William 
J. Stevenson, of Epsilon, presided, and Dr. Mitchell again acted 
as secretary. The evident need of a stronger central govern- 
ment produced at this convention a body known as the " Su- 
preme Consistory," which was to exercise the executive and 
judicial functions of the Fraternity. Its membership consisted 
of all Alphas and ex-Alphas of the several chapters. The 
officers of the Consistory were an Alpha, a Beta, a Pi, an Upsi- 
lon, a Sigma, a Tau and an Iota, the unmistakable ancestors of 
the present Grand Officers. These officers together formed a 
board called the " Grand Arch Tribunal." The Supreme Con- 
sistory was divided into seven departments, the duties of which 
covered every conceivable phase of fraternity activity. It was 
further provided that the Consistory should meet semi-annually 
in Philadelphia, while the Grand Arch Tribunal and each of the 
seven departments should hold quarterly meetings at the same 
place. To divert a moment from the chronological history of 
the Fraternity, it may be noted that the first, last and only 
meeting of the Supreme Consistory was held in Philadelphia on 
December 28—29, 1859. Seventeen members were present, but 
as twenty-two were necessary to constitute a quorum, the Con- 
sistory adjourned, although numerous committees were ap- 
pointed to carry on the work of the various departments. At 
the convention of the following year, the Consistory was abol- 
ished, only to be reorganized, so as to consist of three delegates 
from each chapter instead of the Alphas and past Alphas, and 
Dr. Mitchell was created its head for a term of two years. It 
does not appear, however, that anything further was done by 
this cumbersome and high-sounding body. 

The Washington Convention of 1858 is further interesting 
in that the minutes show that Attorney-General Black, whose 
son, Chauncey F. Black, of Delta, was a delegate to the conven- 
tion, had arranged to present the members to President Bu- 



28 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

chanan. The minutes of the convention state: " The Frater- 
nity headed by the officers of the convention proceeded to the 
office of the Attorney-General, by whom they were cordially 
received and escorted to the White House. Each one by name 
was presented to the President, after which Mr. Stevenson made 
a short but exceedingly appropriate address, informing the 
President of the object of their call, to pay that tribute of re- 
spect to which he, as a man, and as the Chief Magistrate of the 
nation was so eminently entitled, and, in referring to the Fra- 
ternity, mentioned that every portion of the Union was there 
represented. The President, after alluding in flattering terms 
to the visit, spoke of the influence of such conventions, composed 
as they were of the best educated young men of the country, 
facetioushy remarking ' that an old man like himself might stand 
in dread of being blown " sky high," ' and in relation to the 
responsibility resting upon them, expressed the earnest hope 
that they would all prove devoted to the interests, and use their 
influence in maintaining the integrity and preserving the glory 
of the Union." The convention closed with an oration by Sam- 
uel Dickson, of Alpha, and a poem by William Baillie Ritter, 
of Eta. 

The Convention of December 27-28, 1860, held in New 
York, was a memorable one in the annals of the Fraternity. 
Of the fifteen chapters, twelve were present. " The integrity of 
the Union " referred to by President Buchanan two years before 
was then seriously threatened. The election of President Lin- 
coln had taken place the preceding month, and it is easy to 
imagine that the state of excitement in the country was reflected 
among the delegates. Prior to the assemblage of the conven- 
tion, Mu Chapter had, on December 18, addressed a circular 
letter to all the chapters, calling attention to the political con- 
dition of the country and emphasizing the claims of the state as 
" paramount to all other considerations." It submitted to the 
chapters a series of questions, inquiring whether the Fraternity 
could continue as a united body in case of a dissolution of the 
Union ; what steps could be taken to meet the new relations 
arising from such dissolution ; and whether an amendment should 
not be inserted in the ritual of initiation obliging each member

" to still sectional interference and agitation." In accordance 
with the purport of this letter, William P. Grivot, of Mu, 
offered at the convention a resolution recommending that " an 
obligation be placed in the ceremony of initiation which shall 
recognize the social distinction between the white and black 
races." The slavery question thus injected into the Fraternity 
consumed the entire attention of the convention. Theta Chap- 
ter, following the example of Mu, offered a resolution calling 
for the same constitutional amendment, prefaced by various pre- 
ambles reciting the condition of the country. Strange to say, 
Xi Chapter from the neighboring State of Mississippi presented 
a motion that no resolution of a political nature should be 
admitted before the convention. To this the Theta Chapter 
retorted that its resolution was not a political sentiment, but 
" a just demand of a necessary recognition of principle within 
the Fraternity." After a long debate, it was decided that " in 
view of the present distracted and eminently critical condition 
of our country, deeply affecting all classes of citizens, a com- 
mittee of one from every chapter should be appointed to pre- 
pare an address to the chapters and members of the Fraternity, 
and that all addresses, resolutions and communications of a 
political nature should be referred to that committee." The 
committee was accordingly appointed and on the following day 
presented both a majority and a minority report. The major- 
ity, composed of the committeemen from Beta, Epsilon, Zeta 
and all of the Southern chapters, except Xi, reported that an 
address alone would be inadequate to meet the difficulties of the 
occasion, and they therefore proposed a resolution stating that 
the Fraternity recognize the social distinction between white and 
black races, and they further proposed a constitutional amend- 
ment to carry into effect the resolution. The minority report, 
submitted by the remaining Northern committeemen, together 
with Xi, reported that in their opinion an address would be 
amply sufficient. After an animated discussion the whole mat- 
ter was referred back to the committee, with the result that the 
committee unanimously reported that an address be sent out, 
and that the initiation ritual include a pledge " to still all po- 
litical and religious interference and agitation whenever and 



30 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

wherever it may arise in the Fraternit}'." An address was 
accordingly prepared and dispatched to all the chapters, signed 
by the entire thirty-four delegates. In a dignified style it pro- 
claimed the stability and union of the Fraternity irrespective of 
political dissolution and urged fraternal harmony among the 
members. This brief sketch of the slavery agitation at this 
convention, recounting it only as disclosed by the minutes, neces- 
sarily leaves to the imagination the heated political arguments 
which must have taken place among the delegates. 

The convention closed with a dinner at the Fifth Avenue 
Hotel, at which an oration was delivered by William Godley, of 
Beta, and a poem by Albert H. Slape, of Epsilon. The minutes 
note that at the same time and place the Delta Kappa Epsilon 
was holding a banquet and that an interchange of sentiments 
was had between the banquets. To the Delta Kappa Epsilon 
was sent the following: 

" Phi Kappa Sigma to Delta Kappa Epsilon : The secret 
societies of America — may an honorable rivalry ever incite 
them and harmony characterize their intercourse." The reply : 
" Six cheers for the Phi Kappa Sigma. The Delta Kappa 
Epsilon to the Phi Kappa Sigma returns her most cordial salu- 
tation with the following sentiment : The secret societies of 
American colleges, planets of the same educational system, may 
their movement rival the harmony of the spheres." 

The New York Convention adjourned to meet at Richmond, 
Va., in 1862. Owing to the Civil War this convention did not 
meet, and it was not until December 28-29, 1864, that the Fra- 
ternity again gathered as a national body. This convention 
\\a>> held at Philadelphia in the famous Parlor C of the Conti- 
nental Hotel. The seven Northern chapters were all present, 
the eight from the South all absent. All of the chapter reports 
refer to the havoc wrought by the war. No reference is made 
to the condition of any of the Southern chapters, except that 
of Omicron. As to that chapter, the convention was in receipt 
of a letter from Newton William, of Delta, stating that he was 
Hhii at Centre College, but that no member of Omicron was to 
be found. Apparently no oration or poem was delivered. 

The Convention of December 27-28, 1865, met at the Fifth

Avenue Hotel, New York City. Eight Northern chapters were 
represented, Pi at Harvard having been founded since the last 
convention. The non-existence of the eight Southern chapters 
was by this time undoubted, and the convention directed that 
active steps be taken to reorganize them wherever possible. At 
the same time the convention chartered a new chapter, Rho, at 
Austin College, Huntsville, Texas, an ill-starred attempt which 
lasted but a year. This convention was presided over by Dr. 
Mitchell. Neither the orator, Daniel S. Tuttle, of Iota, nor the 
poet, Clay MacCauley, of Epsilon, was present. The Conven- 
tion of 1866 met on December 27-28 of that year in Philadel- 
phia. The eight Northern chapters were all present and the 
Southern chapters, which were still carried on the rolls, all 
absent, including the Rho Chapter. Henry L. Bunstein, of 
Gamma, presided, with Robert N. Clark, of Alpha, as secre- 
tary. It was reported that efforts were being made to revive 
the Nu Chapter at Cumberland University and the Omicron 
Chapter at Centre College, but apparently nothing was doing. 
Resolutions were again adopted calling for the reorganization 
of the Southern chapters and the convention adjourned. 

A year later the convention met at Harrisburg, Pa., on 
December 31, 1867, and January 1, 1868, under the presidency 
of Louis E. McComas, of Epsilon, with John C. Sims, of Alpha, 
as secretary. The convention, while attended by only six chap- 
ters, is of importance in that it directed a revision of the Con- 
stitution, which, when adopted the following year, became the 
basis of the present government of the Fraternity. The usual 
oration was delivered by Henry L. Bunstein, of Gamma, and a 
poem prepared by Henry F. King, of Epsilon, was read by 
Horace Bonham, of Gamma. 

The Conventions of May 15, 1869, and December 22, 1869, 
both held at Philadelphia, mark the beginning of the general 
Fraternity as it now exists as a national body. At these con- 
ventions the Constitution which, with revisions, is still in force, 
was adopted. There was created by it the body now known as 
the Grand Chapter, which has met each year since then and 
which exercises general legislative power over the Fraternity. 
There was created at the same time the Executive Board, which, 



32 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

as its name implies, is the executive body of the Fraternity be- 
tween the sessions of the Grand Chapter. The second of these 
two conventions marked the erection of the Sigma Chapter at 
Lehigh University. The Fraternity at this time, geographic- 
ally speaking, was a sectional body, consisting of five chapters 
in Pennsylvania, one in New Jersey and one in New York. Both 
the Pi and Rho chapters had passed away and the ante-bellum 
chapters in the South were all out of existence. Iota, at Colum- 
bia, had but one man in college and became dormant in 1870. 
National fraternity spirit was at low ebb and a desire to remedy 
this was doubtless the reason for the calling of a general con- 
vocation, the first of several which have been since held, which 
met at Philadelphia on December 31, 1871. Judge James D. 
Watters, of Epsilon, presided, and the historic oration and 
poem were revived, the former being delivered by Henry Kyd 
Douglas, of Zeta, and the latter by Horatio C. King, of 
Epsilon. 

At the convention held at Philadelphia, January 9—10, 
1873, called the " fifth " under the new Constitution, but in 
reality the fourteenth actually held, Leroy S. Edwards appeared 
from Eta Chapter, the first Southern delegate since the war. 
Brother Edwards was the moving spirit in the reorganization 
of Eta on September 26, 1872, and he was also largely instru- 
mental in establishing the Tau Chapter at Randolph-Macon 
College, in January, 1872, and the Phi Chapter at Richmond 
College, in January, 1873. As a further evidence of the revived 
interest in the Fraternity there had been established on July 8, 
1872, the first chapter in the Middle West, namely, Upsilon 
Chapter at Northwestern University, which was fathered by 
James C. Ernst, of Beta. The organization of the first Alumni 
Association, located in New York City, had occurred in 1869. 
In order to encourage such organizations, they were in 1870 
given representation in the Grand Chapter, but this was re- 
pealed in 1871, and from that time until 1901 alumni chapters 
were not officially recognized. Following upon the institution 
of Upsilon, the Chi Chapter was established at Racine College, 
Wisconsin, in March, 1873, mainly through the efforts of Arch 
B. Eldridge, of Beta, and John M. Dandy, of Upsilon. It 



HISTORY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FRATERNITY. 33 

lived, however, but a few years, owing to faculty oppression. 

The Second General Convocation, which was held at Horti- 
cultural Hall, in Philadelphia, June 30, 1876, was by far the 
largest gathering in the history of the Fraternity up to that 
time. Col. James L. Clark, of Eta, acted as salutatorian. 
Henry L. Bunstein, of Gamma, delivered a history of the Fra- 
ternity. Col. Horatio C. King, of Epsilon, read a poem, and 
the oration was delivered by Hon. E. John Ellis, of Theta. 
In the evening an elaborate banquet was held at which Dr. 
Mitchell, the founder of the Fraternity, acted as toastmaster. 
The Grand Chapter met at the same time. A few months be- 
fore, Psi Chapter had been established at the Long Island 
Medical College, Brooklyn, through the efforts of Gamma Chap- 
ter. This entrance into a purely professional school was a 
mistake, and the chapter did not long survive. In fact the 
recent energy of the Fraternity was soon expended, for 1877 
recorded the extinction of both Beta and Epsilon, the former 
because of the wholesale abolition of fraternities at Princeton, 
and the latter from lack of available material. The only en- 
couraging sign was that Lambda Chapter at North Carolina 
had arisen from the ruins of the war and was again in a flourish- 
ing condition, although existing sub rosa, the chapter sending 
special warning to the other chapters never to address communi- 
cations in such a way as to indicate the existence of the chapter. 

During the latter '70's, Alpha, Lambda and Upsilon were 
the most flourishing chapters ; the others then active, Gamma, 
Delta, Zeta, Eta, Sigma, Tau, Phi and Psi, having but two or 
three men each in their respective colleges. The falling off of 
interest since the Convocation of 1876 was apparent in the next 
one, held in 1879, when the number present was less than half at 
that of 1876. So general was the discouraging outlook for the 
Fraternity nationally that no convention was again held until 
January 20, 1882, when it was reported that Gamma and Psi 
were each reduced to one member in college. The Grand Chap- 
ter accordingly withdrew the charter of Psi that year and that 
of Gamma the following year. Zeta Chapter, which had had a 
long and prosperous existence, was also in dire straits, so much 
so that at the Convention of January, 1882, it was voted to 



34 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

disband the chapter. However, local brethren in Lancaster 
came to its relief, and the Executive Board, in March of 1882, 
by what was apparently a stretch of its constitutional powers, 
decided to hold in abeyance the order disbanding Zeta, with the 
result that at the convention held on December 29, 1882, the 
dissolution of Zeta was repealed. 

Despite these adverse circumstances felt so generally 
throughout the chapters, a high standard of membership was 
maintained by all. Several struggled along with but two or 
three members, preferring the risk of extinction to a lowering 
of the standard of membership. Epsilon indeed surrendered 
its charter for this reason, and Sigma and Phi were without men 
in college for a few years. 

The Conventions of 1882 mark the first discussions looking 
toward the establishment of a Fraternity magazine, but nothing 
seems to have been done in the matter until 1890, as will be 
noted later. 

The Omega Chapter at Haverford College was founded in 
1884, the Executive Board reporting to the Grand Chapter 
that its establishment was " the crowning effort of the year." 
Spasmodic efforts to revive dormant chapters came to a head 
at this convention, and it w r as resolved that Beta and Iota 
should be reorganized by the Alpha, Gamma by Sigma, Epsilon 
by Zeta and Phi by Tau. The only result was the revival of 
Phi in the following year. 

In 1886, the need of a Fraternity magazine was again 
discussed, and the Tau Chapter was authorized to publish a 
paper in the interest of the Fraternity. Nothing, however, was 
done until the session of the Grand Chapter held at Norfolk, 
Virginia, January 3, 1890. This convention, while small in 
numbers, was in many respects a turning point in the Frater- 
nity's career as a national organization. Delegates were pres- 
ent from but five chapters, Alpha, Eta, Lambda, Phi and Omega, 
but it authorized the inauguration of the Phi Kappa Sigma 
Quarterly and elected Stuart McGuire, of Eta, editor-in-chief. 
Dr. McGuire subsequently declined, and George. Gordon Battle, 
of Lambda, was substituted in his place. The first number was 
published in New York, in February, 1891. Subsequent issues 



HISTORY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FRATERNITY. 35 

were published in Philadelphia regularly until 1901, when it was 
discontinued and superseded by the Phi Kappa Sigma Nexvs 
Letter, the official organ at the present time. 

At this convention Lambda Chapter reported that it had 
the honor to possess the first chapter house in the Fraternity. 
The delegates reported the house as a " beautiful and conven- 
ient chapter house which was built, furnished and presented to 
the chapter by our generous alumni." It is described as " a 
building about thirty by forty feet and is painted in our colors, 
but the outside appearance gives but a slight idea of the con- 
venience and beauty of its interior. Our Assembly Hall is a 
large room, which, thanks to the kindness of Frank B. Dancy, 
is most handsomely and appropriately decorated. On the ros- 
trum we have three handsome mahogany chairs with old gold 
cushions ; a handsome Brussels carpet is on the floor. Our 
windows have lace curtains and shades with Lambda and the 
skull and cross bones painted on them. All of the globes of the 
lamps have the same thing painted on them; all of us are con- 
stantly stimulated to still greater action on account of our neat 
hall." 

The Convention of 1891 met in Philadelphia on January 
1st, with nine chapters represented, the largest since 1860. 
The loss of Omega Chapter, caused by prohibitive faculty legis- 
lation, was offset by the institution of Psi at Pennsylvania State 
College, which was accomplished by the absorption of the local 
chapter of the Q. T. V. Society. In 1892 Rho Chapter was 
founded at the University of Illinois. 

In 1893, Anthony Sambola, of Theta, revived the Mu 
Chapter at Tulane, and the Kappa Chapter at Lake Forest was 
founded, but both, together with the youthful Rho Chapter, 
soon succumbed, chiefly because of the financial panic at that 
time. The Fraternity did not seem to realize the importance 
of establishing chapters only upon a firm basis so as to assure 
their permanency. In 1894 the Alpha Alpha Chapter was 
founded at Washington and Lee University at Lexington, Va., 
.and the Epsilon Chapter at Dickinson was revived by the ab- 
sorption of a local society known as Alpha Zeta Phi, which had 
existed successfully at that institution for a number of years. 



$6 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

In the following year the Alpha Beta Chapter at Toronto Uni- 
versity, the only chapter organized outside the territory of the 
United States, came into existence. Practically all of its mem- 
bers, however, failed to return the next year and the chapter's 
career was abortive. The charter of Lambda was finally with- 
drawn with great regret in 1896, after it had led a struggling 
existence for three or four years. Mu, which had succumbed 
temporarily, was revived in 1901, and has since continued ac- 
tive. Rho also was revived in 1902 and Iota in 1904 under 
favorable conditions and they have since attained high rank in 
their respective universities. 

It will thus be seen that from 1860 to the middle of the last 
decade of the century the Fraternity suffered from a lack of 
cohesion nationally, occasional periods of enthusiasm and ex- 
pansion being succeeded by a recurrence of apathy. The effect 
of the beginning of civil war in the country in 1861 was to 
deprive the Fraternity at one blow of half its active life. From 
such a calamity recovery was necessarily prolonged. The won- 
der is, not that a long period of national inactivity followed, but 
that the Fraternity survived it all. It is a powerful testimonial 
to the loyalty of its members that it succeeded eventually in 
restoring its organic unity. The national lethargy was not, 
however, reflected in the several chapters individually. During 
this whole period Alpha Chapter maintained its historic posi- 
tion as the leading fraternity at the University of Pennsylvania. 
Eta Chapter at Virginia, following its revival after the war, 
together with the Tau and Phi chapters in the same date, ob- 
tained members of the highest personnel, as did Lambda at 
North Carolina. In the West the Upsilon Chapter for many 
years maintained an isolated existence with marked success. It 
was not, however, until 1896 that the Fraternity began to as- 
sume its present commanding position as a national organiza- 
tion. Since that time several chapters have been added in the 
leading institutions of the country under conditions which have 
assured permanent organizations. The result has been a mar- 
velous development in the Fraternity as a national body. It 
now numbers thirty-one active chapters, all of which are strong 
in their respective colleges and are united as one general society.

HISTORY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FRATERNITY. 37 

The Executive Board, which for many years after its creation 
in 1869 met at irregular intervals, has for the last twenty-five 
years held regular monthly meetings and carries on an enor- 
mous amount of executive business and detail throughout the 
year. 

No better testimony of the Fraternity's strength can be 
found than in the enthusiastic manner with which its Semi- 
centennial was celebrated in Horticultural Hall, Philadelphia, 
on October 17, 18 and 19, 1900. Delegates from all the active 
chapters and several hundred alumni assembled from all parts 
of the country. In addition to the routine business sessions of 
the Grand Chapter a general convocation was held during the 
convention. This was presided over by Grand Alpha J. Hart- 
ley Merrick, with Charles Hare Hutchinson, of Alpha, one of 
the two then surviving founders of the Fraternity, as honorary 
president. Thomas Lynch Montgomery, of Alpha, past Grand 
Alpha, delivered an historical address ; Russell Duane, of Alpha, 
was the orator, and General Horatio C. King, of Epsilon, read 
a poem. On the 18th a memorial service was held at St. Ste- 
phen's Church, in the porch of which edifice are buried the re- 
mains of Dr. Mitchell, the founder. The service was conducted 
with great impressiveness, all of the officiating clergy being 
members of the Fraternity. The sermon was delivered by the 
Rev. George Woolsey Hodge, of Alpha Chapter. On the eve- 
ning of the 19th the Semi-Centennial was brought to a close with 
an elaborate banquet, at which between two hundred and fifty 
and three hundred Phi Kaps were present, the Hon. William U. 
Hensel, of Zeta, acting as toastmaster. Toasts were responded 
to by Samuel Dickson, Esq. (Alpha), of the Philadelphia Bar; 
Hon. George Glover Crocker (Pi), chairman of the Boston Sub- 
way Commission ; Randal Morgan, Esq. (Alpha), vice-president 
of the United Gas Improvement Company ; Dr. William Draper 
Lewis (Omega), dean of the Law School of the University of 
Pennsylvania, and others. 

In 1901 the Executive Board found that the Phi Kappa 
Sigma Quarterly was not fulfilling its proper function as a Fra- 
ternity magazine and accordingly suspended it, and instituted 
in its stead the publication known as the Phi Kappa Sigma 



38 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

New* Letter, which has since continued as the official organ of 
the Fraternity. The News Letter aims to present a succinct 
record of the current progress of the Fraternity, without any 
attempt to pose as a literary magazine. Its circulation, free 
of cost among all living members, has proved to be the means of 
awakening and solidifying fraternal loyalty to a remarkable 
degree. 

At its Convention at Baltimore in 1004, the Grand Chapter 
instituted the officers known as " Chapters Visitors " who are 
appointed by the Executive Board, one from each chapter, as 
overseers of their chapters. These officers are selected from 
among the alumni of the Fraternity and are required to make 
stated visits to the chapters and to report to the Executive 
Hoard upon the conditions found existing. By this means the 
Executive Board is put in possession of accurate information 
concerning each chapter from the point of view of the graduate. 
The convention of 1907 held in New York authorized the 
creation of the Phi Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund for the 
purpose of raising money to buy or build chapter houses to be 
owned by the General Fraternity for the benefit of the chapters. 
Ilaseltine Smith, Alpha '95, was made chairman of the fund and 
subsequently elected to the newly created office of Grand Epsi- 
lon. This position lie continued to hold until his election as 
Grand Alpha in December, 1916. He continued practically in 
charge of the fund until the spring of 1919 for the reason that 
his immediate successor as Grand Epsilon, Benjamin Lee, 2nd, 
enlisted in the Naval Aviation service shortly after his election 
and was killed while flying off the coast of England in the fall 
of 1918. During his management of the office, Brother Smith 
raised $22 586 in cash, together with considerable additional 
sums in installment subscriptions. The first house erected with 
endowment fund money was that of Eta Chapter at the Univer- 
sity of Virginia, which was occupied in the summer of 1911. 
Subsequently the fund took over the equity of the Alpha Xi 
Chapter in its house at Purdue University and in the fall of 
1917 purchased a home for Alpha Pi Chapter at the University 
of Chicago. The title to all three houses stands in the names of 



HISTORY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FRATERNITY. 39 

the trustees of the Phi Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund. The 
trustees originally appointed were General Horatio C. King, 
Epsilon '58 ; Effingham B. Morris, Alpha '75, President of the 
Girard Trust Company of Philadelphia ; and Claude A. Swan- 
son, Tau '85, United States Senator from Virginia. Upon the 
death of General King in 1918, Judge Wells M. Cook, Upsilon 
'95, became his successor. In addition to these three houses, 
seventeen houses are owned by various chapters, the money hav- 
ing been raised by the chapter alumni. All of the remaining 
chapters have rented houses and in practically all cases have 
building funds. A fair valuation of all houses owned is $625,- 
750, in which the Fraternity's equity amounts to $412,350. 

From the early '80's until 1914, the Grand Chapter met 
every year, usually in December. The convention in the year 
last named was held under the auspices of Alpha Iota Chapter 
at Nashville, Tenn. This was the first convention held in the 
far South. This session passed an amendment to the constitu- 
tion, providing that the Grand Chapter should meet " annually 
or otherwise " as might be determined from time to time. Ac- 
cordingly the following year the convention was held on August 
26th and 27th, 1915, in San Francisco, during the Panama- 
Pacific Exhibition. Notwithstanding the long distance from 
the geographical center of the Fraternity, the convention was 
attended by a large number of delegates and alumni from the 
East and South. Up to this time the various officers of the 
Executive Board had conducted the Fraternity's business from 
their private offices. The volume of business had increased to 
such an extent that in the case of three or four of the officers it 
was no longer practicable to continue in this manner. The 
Grand Chapter therefore authorized the established of a Fra- 
ternity office, located in Philadelphia, with the employment of 
such clerical help as would be necessary to maintain the office 
properly. This has proven of great practical benefit. All of 
the business records of the Fraternity are now located in this 
office and most of the correspondence is carried on from there. 

The next convention was held at Chicago, 111., on Decem- 
ber 30th and 31st, 1916, and in attendance surpassed all previ-

ous sessions. As the United States entered the world war in 
April, 1917, it was determined to hold no convention until after 
the war. The Executive Board, anticipating the effect of the 
war upon the undergraduate chapters, took steps in the spring 
of 1917 to collect data concerning the exact status of the real 
estate and general business condition of each of the chapters 
and where necessary saw to it that no chapter suffered by rea- 
son of the reduction in its membership. During the winter of 
1917 and 1918 all of the chapters continued in operation, none, 
however, with more than fifty per cent, of normal membership 
and many with but two or three members in attendance, al- 
though many of the undergraduates were under the original 
draft age. From the records which the Fraternity has gath- 
ered and which are believed to be as nearly correct as possible, 
twenty-four hundred and eighty-six members entered the mili- 
tary or naval service or enlisted in one of the auxiliary organi- 
zations, such as the Red Cross or the " Y," while many others 
worked as civilians at some form of war activity. As far as is 
known, forty-two members gave up their lives in the service of 
their country. The Fraternity is justly proud of the record 
of its members in the war. 

The fall of 1918 saw the colleges operating under the regu- 
lations of the Student Army Training Corps. Dormitories 
and fraternity houses were converted into barracks or used for 
other purposes in connection with the military occupation. The 
question at once arose as to the situation of the fraternities. 
The original instructions issued from the War Department at 
Washington were somewhat ambiguous and led to the impres- 
sion in many places that the fraternities were not to be allowed 
to continue their existence by the initiation of new members. 
The general officers of the Fraternity promptly took up the 
matter with the authorities in Washington, as was also done by 
officers of other fraternities, and a supplemental order was 
issued showing that while the usual social activities of the fra- 
ternities would not be permitted there was no objection to the 
maintenance of the organizations by the initiation of new mem- 
bers. The cessation of hostilities in November, 1918, and the 
abandonment of the Student Army Training Corps shortly

thereafter removed the question as to the status of the frater- 
nities, although in many instances the return to normal condi- 
tions was not brought about until the fall of 1919. 

During the last week of June, 1919, the Grand Chapter 
again met at Atlantic City, N. J. Elaborate plans were laid 
to make this convention a grand rally of undergraduates and 
alumni alike in order to restore the morale interrupted by the 
war and to start the chapters enthusiastically upon the opening 
of colleges in the fall. The convention was largely attended, 
was addressed by various alumni, including members who had 
seen service overseas and in all respects was most successful. 

In conclusion, the present activities of the Fraternity as a 
national organization may be summarized as follows : 

I. The Grand Chapter, consisting of three delegates from 
each chapter and one delegate from each alumni chapter, under 
the presidency of the Grand Alpha. The Executive Board and 
the Chapter Visitors collectively constitute additional voting 
units on votes which are taken by chapters. The Grand Chap- 
ter has general legislative power over the Fraternity subject to 
the provisions of the Constitution. The Constitution, By-Laws 
and Acts of the Grand Chapter are collected in printed form 
and are in the possession of each chapter. 

II. The Executive Board, which consists of the Grand 
Officers of the Grand Chapter, is the working executive of the 
Grand Chapter between the sessions. The Board is presided 
over by the Grand Alpha and meets monthly, carrying into 
execution an enormous amount of governmental detail. 

III. The offices of the Grand Beta and the Grand Pi, who 
supervise the chapter visitor system. The chapters are divided 
into two groups, over one of which the Grand Beta and over the 
other the Grand Pi has charge, directing the work of the respec- 
tive Chapter Visitors. 

IV. The office of the Grand Sigma, who is the secretary of 
the Executive Board and of the Grand Chapter, performing the 
varied duties which customarily belong to such an office. 

V. The office of the Grand Tau, who collects and disburses 
the finances of the Fraternity. These finances are raised by a 
stated per capita tax upon all of the chapters. The funds are

used in paying the expenses of the Grand Officers and of one 
delegate from each chapter to the Grand Chapter; for the publi- 
cation of the Phi Kappa Sigma News Letter, which is sent free 
to all living members; for the puhlication of a pocket directory 
of living members, which is issued in every alternate year, and 
for various current miscellaneous expenses. 

VI. The office of the Grand Upsilon, who is the editor of 
the Phi Kappa Sigma News Letter, of 'the pocket directory and 
of the general Register. The duties of the Grand Upsilon entail 
the keeping of an accurate card catalogue of the names and 
addresses of all living members of the Fraternity. 

VII. The office of the Grand Epsilon, who is the head of 
the Endowment Fund through which money is raised to finance 
the erection of houses for the chapters, to be owned by the 
chapters or by the general Fraternity for their use.

History of Alpha Chapter 

A complete history of Alpha Chapter must of necessity 
include, to a certain extent, a history of the Fraternity itself, 
but as that appears elsewhere in this Register only a brief 
summary can be here given of Alpha's part in the building up 
of our national organization. 

The early papers left by Dr. Mitchell in his handwriting 
indicate that he first conceived the idea of establishing a frater- 
nity at the University of Pennsylvania on the 16th of August, 
1850, a date that is memorable in the annals of Alpha Chapter, 
not only from this fact, but because August 16th was, by a 
strange coincidence, the date both of the birth and death of the 
founder. 

It was with the idea of a rivalry with Delta Phi, then the 
only college fraternity established at Pennsylvania, when Dr. 
Mitchell, with that energy and enthusiasm which spine of us still 
remember, took into his confidence a few intimate classmates, 
and as the result of a conversation held in Professor Vethake's 
room at the University, then located in Ninth Street, Phi Kappa 
Sigma, the only fraternity founded at the University of Penn- 
sylvania, was organized on the 19th day of October, 1850. The 
founders were Samuel Brown Wylie Mitchell, James Bayard 
Hodge, Alfred Victor Du Pont, Charles Hare Hutchinson, John 
Thorn Stone, Duane Williams and Andrew Adams Ripka. 
These seven met at the house of James Bayard Hodge, at the 
northwest corner of Ninth and Walnut Streets, and organized 
by calling him to the chair. A constitution and by-laws were 
then presented and adopted, having been previously drafted by 
a committee which met at Duane Williams' house, on the north 
side of Walnut Street, between Eighth and Ninth Streets, next 
door to what is now the Casino. " An order of initiation was 
then framed, the badge adopted, and the life of the Fraternity 
begun. 

47 



4 3 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

The greater part of the work, and the design of the badge, 
was Dr. Mitchell's ; he was the soul and spirit of the movement 
and had a natural ability for organization ; and, although there 
were other societies of which he was founder, he never allowed 
any of them to interfere with his love for the Fraternity. The 
early development of the order is largely attributable to his 
fostering care and effort in its behalf. His charm of manner 
and great earnestness of purpose made him always desired and 
conspicuous. 

The Fraternity began at once to flourish, when shortly 
after, in December, Hodge died of scarlet fever, and this sad 
event cast a gloom over the others. Notwithstanding this, the 
Fraternity grew rapidly. From accounts, for the records say 
nothing about it, they had no regular place for meetings for 
some time, but held them either at each other's houses or at 
some convenient hotel or restaurant. They finally secured 
rooms in a house on the east side of Tenth Street below South. 
This was not a convenient locality, and the premises were shortly 
vacated on account of a dispute between the landlord and the 
tenant, as the members of the Fraternity, being subtenants of 
the latter, became disagreeably connected as witnesses in a law- 
suit. 

From here rooms were rented in a house which stood on 
the northeast corner of Eighth and Walnut Streets. While 
here the faculty suddenly became aware of the existence of the 
organization and were alarmed lest the nefarious schemes and 
practics, which they supposed were being carried on under cover 
of secrecy, should injure the reputation of the University. 
Threats of expulsion were made and the parents and guardians 
of the students were written to and the members summoned to 
attend in the faculty room and answer for themselves. When 
Dr. Mitchell was summoned, the Provost asked him, on pointing 
to his badge, " Why do you wear that piratical ensign? " As 
one of the members of that period has said, " So far as concerned 
the treatment of undergraduates, the order of the day was 
repression, restriction of liberty and enforced obedience to cast- 
iron rules. The faculty seemed to have set their faces against 
everything desired by the students. Too much afraid of inno- 



HISTORY OF ALPHA CHAPTER. 49 

vations, they fought against changes at a time when any de- 
parture from the old habit would have been an advance in the 
right direction. The trustees followed in the same ruts." 

A printed circular was sent to all the parents and guard- 
ians of the students by the faculty and trustees, warning them 
against the pernicious influence and the dire results that would 
ensue from allowing their sons to join secret societies. 

This opposition only further inspired the efforts of the 
members to add to their number. Dr. Mitchell was a man of 
indomitable will and energy, and opposition on the part of the 
college authorities only had the effect of giving greater impetus 
to the cause. 

In 1852 the last member of the academic department had 
graduated and the only connection that was left with the Uni- 
versity was three members of the medical department. For 
nearly a year the existence of the order was precarious. Only 
medical students composed the membership, and many of them 
ceased to give much of their attention to the interests of the 
society. But here again Dr. Mitchell came to the rescue, and 
he, with a few of those who remained steadfast to the cause, 
initiated the next year, on the 23d of April, 1853, Henry Boyd 
McKeen, for the purpose of founding the Beta Chapter at 
Princeton College, which took root immediately and soon grew 
into a large and flourishing branch of the parent stem ; and on 
the 20th of December following, the Gamma Chapter at La- 
fayette College was founded by Stacy G. Potts, of the Beta 
Chapter. Dr. Mitchell's connection with the medical profession 
brought him almost solely at this time in contact with students 
of the Medical Department of the University, and by reason of 
this the members were wholly initiated from that department. 
On the appointment of Dr. Mitchell to the staff of the Phila- 
delphia Hospital many meetings of the Fraternity were held in 
his rooms at that institution, for now no hall was rented for the 
use of the chapter. During the year following, on the 5th of 
June, the Delta Chapter at Jefferson College, Canonsburg, Pa., 
was enrolled among the list of chapters. 

Thus affairs ran on until the 17th of January, 1855, when 
six members of the college department were initiated at Druids

Hall, on Fifth Street, corner of Adelphi. These were Robert 
H. McGrath, Charles E. Hackley, James Devereux, Samuel 
Dickson, J. M. McGrath and Alexander W. Mitchell. This 
initiation was conducted by Dr. Mitchell, William Cook, Morris 
J. Asch and William McCalla McKecn with great ceremony. 

From this the Fraternity took on a new existence with these 
six members of the collegiate department, and with the careful 
nursing of the founder, Dr. Mitchell, it began to grow rapidly. 
Its previous precarious life was now a thing of the past, and it 
started with renewed vigor on its career. The first four meet- 
ings after this reorganization were held in Phoenix Hall, Zane 
Street above Seventh Street. On the 10th of April, when the 
lodge of the chapter was located in the two front rooms, fourth 
story, of No. 42 South Eighth Street, four members were initi- 
ated — Henry A. du Pont, C. E. Lamotte, William D. Stuart 
and Edward S. Whelen. These rooms were leased to Brother 
R. M. McGrath by Victor Reboul, a shoemaker, with the pro- 
viso " that the premises should not be used in any other manner 
than as a quiet society." 

The first minutes of which there is any record began 25th 
of June, 1855, and are recorded in a book mostly in Dr. Mitch- 
ell's handwriting. On the 10th of January, 1856, the rooms on 
the third story of the same building were taken, where a few 
meetings were held. First of March, 1856, the chapter moved 
into two large rooms with large middle doors on the ground floor 
of No. 57 George (now Sansom) Street above Eleventh Street, 
next to Ashmead's Printing House. These rooms were hand- 
somely fitted up. 

It was during March of 1857 that the Phi Kappa Sigma 
Magazine was started, and an unusually full attendance was 
had at the meeting when the first production of that paper was 
read by Brother Pechin, " causing an amount of satisfaction 
not expected." It was issued monthly. The front covers were 
embellished in pen and ink and water color drawings of various 
designs, with the symbols of the Fraternity. This was the work 
either of C. A. McCall or James Harrison Lambdin, the latter 
being an artist of no mean ability, and who painted a skull and 
bones resting on a book which he presented to the chapter and 



HISTORY OF ALPHA CHAPTER. 51 

which now hangs in the chapter house and is one of the most 
cherished treasures. The magazine always had an editorial, a 
summary of the news of the different chapters condensed from 
the correspondence of the preceding month, one or two articles 
and a poem or two. It was all in manuscript. 

On May 16, 1859, the chapter moved from this locality to 
the second floor back of the building at the northeast corner of 
Tenth and Walnut Streets, which was reported by the Alpha 
of the chapter in his report to be inconvenient and the stay 
only intended to be temporary. In the fall of 1859 it removed 
to the southwest corner of Eighth and Sansom Streets, third 
floor, into very pleasant and commodious rooms, in which the 
chapter was better situated than ever before. It was here that, 
on the 19th of October, I860, the tenth anniversary of the 
founding of the Fraternity was celebrated. The Alpha in his 
report congratulated the chapter upon the results achieved by 
the indefatigable efforts of that valuable officer ■ — the Tau. 
" The comforts we are now enjoying, the adornments and con- 
veniences of our hall, the quiet conscience (as we find ourselves 
almost relieved from debt) are all due to his alchemical powers 
of converting promises into ready cash." 

At the outbreak of the war from the early part of 1861 
the chapter was seriously broken up by reason of her members 
going to the front ; thirty members of Alpha Chapter entered' 
the service. No minutes of the chapter appear between the 
16th of April, 1861, to 16th of November, 1863. They had no 
hall until 1862, when a few members attended meetings at 207 
South Sixth Street, and for a time all interest was given up 
and the prospects were indeed gloomy. In October of this year 
the chapter had only one member with whom to begin the 
session, with the popular notion that the Fraternity was entirely 
defunct. During this exciting period a correspondence was, 
however, kept up by Brother R. II. McGrath, the Upsilon, with 
a number of the chapters, and the Fraternity was kept alive by 
him, the only effective officer left to carry on the work of the 
Fraternity. Many letters were written and received by him 
to and from the field of battle, and from both sides in the con- 
flict. Many acts of kindness and brotherly affection towards 



52 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

each other demonstrated the efficacy of the strong ties that 
bound together the members of Phi Kappa Sigma. 

Those of the chapter who remained in Philadelphia during 
this period hearing that one or more of the Southern members 
were prisoners at Fort Delaware and in very destitute circum- 
stances, made up a box of clothing, eatables, etc., and sent them 
forward. Months afterward there were received through the 
mails on a piece of common brown wrapping paper a few lines 
(signed by Brother Anthony Sambola) stating that some of 
the Southern brethren in the Confederate Army had heard of 
this action, and that if they knew of any Phi Kaps in Southern 
prisons and would advise them, ever} r effort would be made to 
render their situation as tolerable as their scanty means would 
permit. This little incident spoke volumes in behalf of Frater- 
nity combination and work. 

Subsequently rooms were rented at 207 South Sixth Street, 
and in the early part of 1864* the meeting rooms of the chapter 
were located at Sixth and Walnut Streets (southeast corner, 
third-story front room). At this time the chapter was in the 
flush of success, having taken in seven men from the Depart- 
ment of Arts in the different classes. Meetings were now held 
after the time-honored custom. 

It was here that a notable entertainment was given to the 
" Orphan Chapter," a curious abnormal growth of our Frater- 
nity. This chapter was composed of a few men who had casu- 
ally found themselves in Baltimore together at the end of the 
war, and no two of them from the same chapter. The badge 
brought them together, however, and the " Orphans " did us 
great credit during their brief career. 

From Sixth and Walnut Streets the chapter again moved 
in January, 1867, to the third floor of 926 Chestnut Street, 
located directly opposite to the abode of the Delta Psi Frater- 
nity. These rooms were rented from Fonteneau & Salles, but 
were given up in June, 1868. No minutes appear to have been 
kept between December, 1867, and March, 1868. During this 
period initiations were held mostly at the house of Brother John 
Mercer McCall in DeLancey Place. The chapter appears to 
have been at low ebb at this period, but a room was rented on 



HISTORY OF ALPHA CHAPTER. 53 

the fourth floor of 1017 Walnut Street about December 1, 1870. 
This hall was quite large, being 18 by 60 feet. From 1867 to 
the latter part of 1874 the chapter was domiciled in the third 
floor of the southeast corner of Tenth and Chestnut Streets. 

In November of 1874 the chapter again moved to the third 
floor of 1343 Chestnut Street, next door to a then famous 
saloon known as " Finelli's," and where the Liberty building 
now stands. 

In those days the Phi Kaps dominated all the organizations 
of the classes from 1873 to 1879, and as a consequence the 
College Boat Club and the Athletic Association may be said to 
have had their origin in Alpha Chapter, because for several 
years in the early struggles of those helps to college life the 
officers and directors were mainly from our Fraternity. We 
worked well together for the common good of the University, 
and the result has shown the foundations to have been well laid. 
In 1877 the chapter moved to the third floor southeast corner 
of Chestnut and Juniper Streets, where the uptown office of the 
Pennsylvania Company now stands. In 1879 Dr. Mitchell, the 
founder, died and left us the heavy oak chairs and sofa now in 
the present house, with other mementoes. A memorial meeting 
was held upon the occasion of the doctor's death in these rooms, 
the proceedings of which were printed and are among our ar- 
chives. 

It is a pleasure to record that the first official recognition 
of a college fraternity at Pennsylvania was the acceptance by 
the trustees in 1887 of a fund raised"!) y the Alpha Chapter to 
establish a prize to be known as " Prize established by the Phi 
Kappa Sigma Fraternity in honor of its founder, Samuel 
Brown Wylie Mitchell." 

In the autumn of 1893, the rooms were on the second floor 
of the southwest corner of 13th and Walnut Streets, which 
rooms were occupied until 1896 when the Chapter purchased a 
property at 3537 Locust Street. 

This moving of the chapter's quarters to West Philadel- 
phia, opposite the University Campus, is significant of the closer 
alliance of chapter and University interests which has grown 
steadily. 



54 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

Though the moving to S537 Locust Street was a long step 
in advance from the rooms at 153th and Walnut, by 1905 it had 
become evident that larger quarters must be obtained. 

With this end in view and due to the untiring energy and 
unflagging enthusiasm of the committee in charge a fund was 
raised for the purchase of the two small properties between 
:>.">:>7 Locust and the corner of 36th and Locust Streets. This 
gave the chapter a building site at least the equal of any other 
chapter on the campus and on this site the present chapter 
house was built. 

The raising of the funds for the erection of the present 
chapter house on the corner of 36th and Locust was remark- 
able in that it made a record not only for the total amount of 
subscriptions but also the number of new subscriptions. 

The present chapter house was completed in May, 1911, 
and celebrated with a dinner that will be vividly remembered by 
all that were fortunate enough to be able to attend. 

The history of the Alpha Chapter has been closely bound 
with that of the history of the University. It seems fitting to 
mention that it was under the leadership of members of Alpha 
Chapter that plans for an inter-fraternity agreement were com- 
pleted. 

There is comparatively little to note in the history of the 
chapter from the time of occupancy in the new chapter house 
until the entrance of the United States in the World War in 
1917. The new chapter house was of course a great assistance 
in enabling the chapter to maintain its strong position as a 
leader at the University-. 

In a portion of this register will be found a complete 
record of the activities of the members of the Alpha Chapter 
in the World War. In this place, it seems appropriate to give 
a short resume of the difficulties that the chapter encountered 
and the way these difficulties were surmounted. By the fall of 
1917, the membership of the chapter was seriously depleted by 
enlistments in various branches of the service. The same was 
true of mo>t of the chapters at the University. In spite of the 
depletion in members, the chapter was able to maintain its high 
standard due principally to an unusual degree of support from 



HISTORY OF ALPHA CHAPTER. 55 

the Alumni. At the end of the college year, in June, 1918, the 
active Alpha Chapter consisted of three men, all of whom were 
in the Medical School. 

Prior to the time that the college would have opened in 
September, 1918, the University was taken over by the War 
Department for the establishment of a Students' Army Train- 
ing Corps Unit. The Chapter House was also taken over as 
a barracks, and as high as 135 men were quartered therein dur- 
ing the continuation of the Students' Army Training Corps. 

After the signing of the armistice and the demobilization 
of the Students' Army Training Corps, the house was returned 
to the chapter. 

If it had not been for the interest and the support of the 
alumni, the chapter would have been in serious difficulty. As 
it was, with the aid of the men who had been discharged from 
the service, and the aid and interest of the alumni, the chapter 
was able to double its membership between January and June, 
1919. 

During the World War, five of Alpha Chapter members 
gave their lives. In memory of this, a fund has been raised, 
known as the Alpha Chapter Memorial Fund, for the purpose 
of paying off the mortgage. Response to this fund, just as in 
the case of the response to the other for the building of the 
house, was again characterized by the large number of new sub- 
scriptions.

Instituted April 23, A.D. 1853 



HENRY BOYD McKEEN 



History of Beta Chapter 

The details of the history of the Beta Chapter are in- 
volved in the utmost obscurity, owing to the fact that at the 
time of the creation of the chapter at Princeton its affairs 
had to be conducted with the greatest secrecy and care in 
order to keep the existence of the chapter unknown to the 
college authorities on account of the antagonistic attitude of 
the faculty to such organizations. The chapter was organized 
through the efforts of Dr. Mitchell, the founder, who took the 
first step towards the expansion of the Fraternity by initiating 
Henry Boyd McKeen for the purpose of founding the Beta 
Chapter at Princeton College, which was accordingly done on 
the 23d of April, 1853. 

In the early part of 1856 the chapter had rooms located 
about a mile distant from the town, but this fact soon became 
known, and in June, 1857, the president made the proposition 
to the members that if they would surrender the names of those 
composing the chapter, and assure him of their having dis- 
banded, he would allow them to return to the college at the next 
session. 

This they did most piously and were afterwards at ease in 
full enjoyment of their privileges as members of the Beta. 
Great secrecy was enjoined 1 on the other chapters as to their 
existence. In 1864 Dr. McLean, the president, procured a list 
of all fraternities at Princeton and threatened to expel all who 
did not before a given time give up all connections with them. 
A committee was appointed by Beta to confer with the Alpha 
Chapter as to the best course to pursue under these circum- 
stances. They committed their charters and papers to the 
Alpha's care until the storm should blow over. The other 
chapters were requested not to correspond. Individual connec- 
tion could not be broken, but as an organized chapter they could 
not exist. 

147 



148 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

No records of this chapter appear to be in existence, and 
it is doubtful if any were kept in permanent form. Their 
meetings were held clandestinely, and many of the initiations 
were held in Philadelphia at the rooms of the Alpha Chapter. 
The students at Princeton college were not supposed to be 
members of any fraternity, so the proceedings were conducted 
sub rosa. 

On account of the limited membership, the meetings were 
verv informal, but at the same time were no less enjoyable. 

The meeting room was in a two-story-and-a-half frame 
house, situated on a road leading down the hill toward the old 
railroad station, since moved away. The room was about 
10x12 feet in size, with a square pine table and half a dozen 
chairs and a wooden settee for the accommodation of the mem- 
bers. On the wall, in two or three places, the skull and cross- 
bones reposed on a black background, in size about 15 x 12 
inches. There were some sort of black hangings about the 
doors and windows, to give the room a sombre effect and to pre- 
vent the light from being noticed by passers-by on the outside, 
as it was reported that the members were being watched. 
Plenty of pipes and tobacco, but it was unanimously voted 
there should be no stimulants. Occasionally there were essays 
read and the regular proceedings of a society meeting. 

The opposition of the faculty continued so unrelentingly 
that all the fraternities which had chapters at Princeton were 
compelled to withdraw. Phi Kappa Sigma was among the last 
to relinquish its hold, no one being initiated after the Class of 
1881 was matriculated.

History of Gamma Chapter 

Gamma, the third chapter to be founded, was established 
at Lafayette College, Easton, Pa., on December 20, 1853, eight 
months after the foundation of Beta at Princeton. The short 
distance from Princeton to Easton, and the intimate relations 
existing between the two colleges, for the reason that both were 
under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church, naturally led 
Beta to look toward Lafayette as the site of another chapter, 
and, upon assent of the Alpha Chapter, the chapter was duly 
founded. Stacy Gardner Potts, Jr., who had been initiated as 
a student at Princeton, entered Lafayette and gathered together 
the nucleus of the chapter. 

Gamma was the first chapter of any fraternity to enter 
Lafayette, and upon her fell the entire concentrated opposition 
of faculty and trustees. The official opposition in 1857 took 
the form of compelling every new student to take an oath at 
matriculation that he was not and would not become a member 
of a secret Greek letter society. Despite this, the chapter 
reported to the Convention of 1860 that it " continued to pros- 
per and from time to time initiated some of the first men in the 
institution." Prior to 1860 the trustees had withdrawn this 
oath, so that the delegate was able to report that " the dark 
clouds of the displeasure of the powers that be which hung over 
us have been dispelled, and the sunshine has broken through to 
light and cheer our pathway. . . . This odious, unjust and 
tyrannical act has been repealed and we stand to-day recog- 
nized and endorsed by faculty and students." 

For over twenty years Gamma pursued a career of great 
prosperity, numbering among her members many brethren who 
have since become well known in professional and business life. 
About- 1880, however, the attendance at Lafayette had fallen 
off and the number of students considered available for member- 
ship were very small. This fact, coupled with the failure of 

171 



172 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

several undergraduates to return to college, reduced the chapter 
in 1882 to one active man. In the following year the Grand 
Chapter formally withdrew the charter. The men of Gamma, 
however, all continue to display great interest and loyalty to 
the Fraternity. A number of them, located in New York, are 
among the most active members of the New York Alumni 
Chapter.

ROBERT ST. CLAIR GRAHAM 
GEORGE M. HOUTZ

* Instituted at Jefferson College, Canonsburg, Pa. That college was 
combined with Washington College, Washington, Pa., in 1865, under the 
title Washington and Jefferson College. 



History of Delta Chapter 

On June 5, 1854, Delta Chapter was instituted at Jeffer- 
son College, Canonsburg, Pa., the oldest college in the United 
States west of the Allegheny Mountains. The installation was 
conducted by Samuel Smith, of Gamma Chapter, acting under 
a dispensation of the Alpha Chapter. The founders were J. 
W. Polk of Maryland; W. H. Pretlow, of Virginia, and H. W. 
Patterson, R. S. Graham, G. M. Houtz and J. T. Kyle, of Penn- 
sylvania. At this time there were chapters at Jefferson of 
Beta Theta Pi, Phi Gamma Delta and Phi Kappa Psi, the last 
two fraternities being founded at Jefferson. 

On account of the rivalries and jealousies of these' earlier 
fraternities there was serious faculty opposition to any further 
organizations of a similar character, so the chapter existed 
for a time sub rosa. But in 1855, soon after the beginning of 
the first college year of its life, there was a spirited contest 
on for orator in one of the college literary societies, which 
before it ended almost wrecked the chapter. For in the heat 
of the campaign one of its members so far forgot himself as 
to be guilty of unfraternal conduct of such a serious nature 
that the Alpha Chapter intervened and took action in the mat- 
ter. After careful consideration of the case the chapter was 
dissolved and four of its members expelled from the Fraternity. 

But the old spirit still lived and on March 3, 1855, the 
chapter was reorganized and a fresh start made. The rebirth 
made the members keenly alive to the honor and dignity of the 
Fraternity as well as to its associations and pleasures, and a 
quiet conservatism took hold of the young chapter, which 
began to increase with a steady and careful growth. It soon 
became the leading society at Jefferson and it has been the 
constant aim of its members in later years to preserve the 
pride of position it has always possessed. 

Canonsburg was a quaint old country village in those days

and chapter houses were unknown possessions. Most of the 
men roomed at a house about half a mile from the college on 
the road to Washington, and thus were associated together in 
bonds of closest comradeship. At the same time a chapter hall 
for meetings was maintained with great secrecy, as .the fra- 
ternities of that day were wont to enhance the mystery of their 
fellowship as much as possible. Of the chapter in those days, 
Stephen C. McCandless, later a prominent attorney in Pitts- 
burgh, said: " While a freshman in the year 1858, it was my 
privilege to join the Fraternity. It had its representatives 
then in every college class, and, it seemed to me, there were more 
natural-born and thoroughbred gentlemen among them than 
any other body of students there similarly associated." 

One of the leading spirits of the chapter at this time was 
Chauncey Forward Black, who later became Lieutenant-Gov- 
ernor of Pennsylvania and Democratic leader of that state. 
His father was Chief Justice of Pennsylvania and afterwards a 
member of President Buchanan's Cabinet, first as Attorney- 
General and then as Secretary of State. At the convention of 
the Fraternitv held in Washington in December, 1858, Judge 
Black dined the delegates at his home and afterwards presented 
them to President Buchanan at the White House. 

The Civil War was a severe blow to Delta. Old Jefferson 
had drawn almost as largely from the South as from the North, 
and at the outbreak of the war more than half of the students 
left college, some to enroll themselves under the flag of the 
T T nion and some to fight under the Stars and Bars. During 
the war nearly every man in the chapter fought on one side or 
the other, Delta furnishing nine officers to the Northern forces 
and eleven to the Confedcracv. 

In 18fi5 Jefferson College was united with Washington 
College at Washington, Pa., only seven miles away, and the 
two colleges then took the name of "Washington and Jeffer- 
son," the principal scat of the college being at Washington. 
For several year-; after the consolidation, however, the buildings 
at both Canonsburg and Washington continued to be used. 
Accordingly the chapter initiated men from both institutions 
and maintained in reality a double organization. 



HISTORY OF DELTA CHAPTER. 201 

Delta recuperated quicker from the effects of the war than 
did the other fraternities, and as faculty recognition had been 
secured, it at once took front rank in the fraternity world. 
Since that time five other fraternities have established chapters 
at Old Washington and Jefferson, but the men of Delta still 
hold the place that is theirs by right of inheritance and present 
worth, the foremost representative of the local Greek Letter 
World. 

The World War almost wiped Delta out of existence for 
out of an active membership of twenty-three at the entrance 
of the United States in the Great War but three were left to 
pull old Delta through. But being true Phi Kaps they did 
pull her through and now with many old men coming back 
and fine prospects in pledges Delta is prepared to take her old 
stand at the head of fraternities at Washington and Jefferson. 
A plan is under way whereby with the loyal cooperation of her 
alumni Delta will own her own chapter house soon and with her 
increased membership be stronger than ever.

Epsilon Chapter 

DICKINSON COLLEGE 

CARLISLE, PENNSYLVANIA 



Instituted September 5, A. D. 1854 



CHARLES FRANCIS HIMES 
EMANUEL H. REIGART 
JOHN SOUTHGATE TUCKER 
JAMES DAVID WATTERS 



History of Epsilon Chapter 

On the 9th of November, 1854, a charter authorizing the 
establishment of the Epsilon Chapter of the Phi Kappa Sigma 
Fraternity was granted to Emanuel H. Reigart, who together 
with John S. Tucker, Charles F. Himes and James D. Watters 
founded the chapter soon after the granting of the charter. 
Reigart had been previously initiated at his home, Williamsport, 
Pa., on September 5, by William L. Neff of Gamma Chapter. 

No exact records seem to have been kept of the Fraternity's 
existence during its first two or three years, since its life was a 
very precarious one and it had no regular meeting place. Its 
early history was similar to that of all the earlier fraternities 
at Dickinson College and perhaps most other colleges where 
they were introduced fifty or sixty years ago. A few years 
previous to the entrance of the Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity 
into Dickinson College the Zeta Psi Fraternity established a 
chapter there and for more than two years it had a vigorous 
existence, numbering at one time thirty-two members, some of 
them the leading men of the college ; but so great was the 
hostility of the faculty to all organizations of this kind that 
they succeeded in so effectually squelching this one that it was 
never revived and Epilson Chapter came near having the same 
experience. Notwithstanding the efforts of the members to 
maintain secrecy concerning the organization, the existence of 
the Fraternity was discovered by the faculty of the college 
and all of its members, under penalty of expulsion, were ordered 
to disband the chapter and cease all further activity in this 
direction. Foreseeing that something of this kind was likely 
to happen, they initiated Clayton C. Pennel who had not been 
before the faculty and therefore had not made any promise 
such as was exacted of the others, and he kept the organization 
alive until the storm had blown over. How well these promises 
were kept by the others is a matter of conjecture, since they 

257 



258 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

probably made them with certain " mental reservations," a pro- 
ceeding that is not unknown among college students even in 
this " enlightened age." 

It is a matter of record that the chapter held a meeting 
on the 21st of September, 1858, in a cornfield near Carlisle, 
since even then it was not deemed advisable to have any regular 
place of meeting. This meeting, however, did not pass off 
undisturbed, for hearing some noise in the vicinity they feared 
discovery and unceremoniously scattered in all directions, not, 
however, before they had initiated Zebulon Dyer of the Class 
of 1859. Brother Dyer has the distinction of being the first 
graduate member of the chapter to die, being killed in battle 
in December, 1861. At this same meeting it was agreed to 
disband after adjournment, subject to the call of the Alpha, 
so that if any of the members should be questioned they might 
say that they had belonged to a fraternity but that it was now 
disbanded. In November of this year a hall was procured for 
the meetings of the chapter and it is not likely that since that 
time the Fraternity has ever been without a " local habitation," 
certainly not for any considerable length of time. 

About this time the Fraternity seems to have been in a 
very flourishing condition, since among its members were ten 
members of the Class of 1857, eleven of 1858 and nine of 1859. 
Of these thirty men, eight still survive. It is perhaps worthy 
of mention that at this time the Fraternity's only rival was the 
Phi Kappa Psi, established here in 1859, and this rivalry, not 
to say enmity, has been kept up as a sort of tradition to the 
present day. One man who was initiated in 1859 had a dis- 
tinction probably unique in the history of fraternities here, in 
as much as he belonged to both of these fraternities at the same 
time. When this fact was discovered he was promptly expelled 
from the Phi Kappa Sigma. 

Since a large number of the members of Epilson were 
Southerners, the chapter was almost broken up by the Civil 
War. A special meeting of the chapter was held on the 21st 
of April, 1861, for the purpose of bidding a formal farewell to 
the brethren from the South who felt compelled to withdraw 
from the college. 



HISTORY OF EPSILON CHAPTER. 259 

On the morning of the 21st, at ten minutes past midnight, 
the members gathered in Room 50, West College, and held a 
sort of love feast and experience meeting. All business was 
laid aside for the brethren to bid their last adieu to each other, 
perhaps never to meet again. The occasion was a most solemn 
one and sad thoughts filled the breasts of all at parting with 
each other who were so strongly bound together by fraternal 
ties. The Alpha addressed the meeting in a most solemn and 
impressive manner, and many an eye filled with tears at the 
thought of parting. The meeting adjourned in silence and each 
went to his own room. Afterward some enlisted in the Northern 
and some in the Confederate service, and never met again. 

From this time forward the history of the Fraternity shows 
nothing remarkable. That the faculty of the college now began 
to look upon the evil as ineradicable seems probable from the 
fact that at least as early as 1863 the Fraternity publicly 
celebrated its " anniversary," which would not have been risked 
a few years earlier. About 1865 the Fraternity was again 
exceptionally strong. There were five men from the Class of 
1864, five from 1865 and seven from 1866. These figures will 
seem all the more remarkable when the additional fact is men- 
tioned that the Class of 1866 graduated only sixteen men. At 
this time, too, there were three other fraternities in the college, 
the Sigma Chi having entered in 1859 and the Theta Delta 
Chi in 1861. 

About 1873 the college began to decline in numbers so that 
the catalogue of 1877-78 contains only fifty-one names and in 
the meantime another fraternity, the Beta Theta Pi, had entered 
the field. Under these circumstances it became so difficult to 
keep up the chapter in accordance with its traditions that it 
was thought best to surrender the charter, which was accord- 
ingly done in 1877. Apparently no attempt was made to 
revive it until the spring of 1895. A few years previous to 
this time, a strong local fraternity, known as the Alpha Zeta 
Phi, had been organized in the college and when it became 
known that this organization was looking around for an oppor- 
tunity to enter some national fraternity, the " psychological 
moment " seemed to have arrived and negotiations were at once 



260 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

begun which terminated in the re-establishment of the Fra- 
ternity by taking in all of the members of the local organiza- 
tion except perhaps one or two who did not care to belong to 
any fraternity. On the evening of June 3, 1895, were initiated 
about fifteen splendid fellows and the Fraternity has main- 
tained a high rank ever since and is now second to no other in 
the college either in numbers or influence, " our enemies them- 
selves being judges." 

The only other event that needs special attention is the 
erection of a chapter house. The movement for the erection 
of fraternity houses had become so powerful that it was felt 
that our Fraternity could not afford to hold aloof and in the 
fall of 1906 the beautiful and commodious house of the Epilson 
Chapter was formally opened. 

In more recent years classes have come and gone as of old. 
But the traditions of Phi Kappa Sigma have been maintained, 
and many are the illustrious names that have been added to our 
roll. 

When the test of the Great War came, the sons of Epsilon 
played their part valiantly and sixty-five of them wore the 
khaki. Four of our number, Brothers John Zug Steese, '04, 
Earl E. Rahn, '12, John T. Richards, '18, and Kenneth L, 
Steck, '19, made the supreme sacrifice. All of the sixty-five 
served with distinction in the great struggle, and one, Colonel 
James G. Steese, '02, of the General Staff, was especially 
honored by being awarded the Distinguished Service Medal. 
Epsilon is proud of her veterans and will ever honor the 
memories of those who sleep across the seas.

History of Zeta Chapter 

Zeta Chapter was organized by William Lewis Neff, of the 
Gamma Chapter, while a student at law in the office of Colonel 
Reah Frazer at Lancaster. By a previous arrangement, Van 
Lear Perry, who had been at Lafayette College with Neff, met 
him there and entered Franklin and Marshall College, and they 
jointly instituted the chapter on the 13th of October, 1854, a 
charter having been previously granted by the Alpha Chapter. 

Although the majority of the first initiates died in the 
prime of their manhood, their lives bear the mark of distin- 
guished service, not only within the narrow confines of their 
particular homes, but service to the country at large. Their 
ardent devotion to life and learning, to duty and country, their 
manly virtues and unfaltering courage remind us of our solemn 
pledge to the high and lofty ideals which these founders baptized 
with their life's blood for our guidance and imitation. 

For fully twenty years Zefa Chapter enjoyed a prosperous 
and uninterrupted career. Although the college fraternity as 
such was in those days mgrata persona with the faculties every- 
where, and Zeta Chapter was no exception to the rule, but very 
little friction is reported in the minutes between the members and 
the higher powers. It is but natural that a secret organization 
of young men, by common consent, subject to stringent rules 
and regulations, should arouse the suspicion and criticism of 
many an honest and well meaning college professor. Those 
were the years of the first storm and stress of fraternity life, and 
many a chapter perished in the struggle. Those were the years 
in which the American college boy awakened to a sense of his 
own individual co-operation in his educational career ; they 
mark an epoch in the history of our whole educational system. 
Crude, infantile and infrequent as the chapter meetings were in 
those years, primitive and unofficial as their meeting places 
seem to have been, there is no indication of lack of interest and

enthusiasm. And when we read in the minutes of an October 
session of 1869 that the faculty had increased its rigid sur- 
veillance over the fraternities, we find this followed by the 
resolution henceforth to hold fewer business meetings and more 
social gatherings to make the secrecy appear less conspicuous. 
Poverty was the lot of the men of that time, and the chapter 
had hardly ventured upon the renting of a hall. During the war 
year of 1864 its chairs were confiscated and the carpet was sold 
for the payment of the rent, and the meeting had again to be 
held in some young lawyer's lonely office or perchance in the 
cellar of the Literary Society halls. But not daunted in the 
least, the boys went on somewhat in Plato's fashion to cultivate 
" eros " and " Dialegesthai " friendship and thirst for knowl- 
edge, and to hold anniversaries with great pomp, graced by the 
usual poem, the valedictory and the response. 

The interregnum of 1873—74, of which no minutes are 
extant, was followed by a second period of twenty years, with 
intervals between 1885 and 1887, 1891 and 1895. This is the 
period of the rise of the American university, with its accom- 
panying disturbances of college life and college learning. The 
old primitive conditions of fraternity methods and meetings had 
been outgrown, students became more choice in dress and man- 
ners and in the selection of men on the basis of new judgments ; 
the meetings were suspended for months and years, because of 
the lack of men, but the spirit lingered on. Brothers Hager and 
Keller with singular loyalty satisfied the requirements of the 
charter, until a better day dawned, and the opportunity of a 
more vigorous life had arrived. During the larger portion of 
this second period the chapter succeeded in renting and paying 
for a hall, in which they regularly met once a week, while in the 
first period meetings took place at long intervals of a month — 
rarely every two weeks. This period is, therefore, the period of 
closer fellowship, of solidification, of effort towards permanency 
on the basis of real estate. It was also the period when the rela- 
tion between faculty and fraternity grew more friendly, when the 
authorities began to see the educational value of fraternal life, 
and in the new universities fraternities spring up like mush- 
rooms. It is, however, not until 1896, the beginning of the

" modern period," that the chapter becomes fully and perma- 
nently established as a prominent factor in the college com- 
munity. The names of the sainted Glase Gerhard, of Pilgram 
and Dieffenbach are pre-eminent in those days of reconstruction. 
We read in a minute of September 30, 1896: "A house was 
rented on West James Street, in close proximity to the college. 
Already fraternity life has advanced tenfold. All the boys 
voice the one sentiment that it is the only ideal college life. 
This evening was a notable one for Zeta Chapter." For the 
last twenty-four years the number of active members has been 
greater than ever before, the Fraternity has become a dis- 
ciplinary power in the college, it has become a great benevolent 
institution. In 1886 the chapter contributed one hundred dol- 
lars towards the observatory; in 1900 the same amount to the 
Science building, while individual members gave many thou- 
sands towards the building and its equipment, furnishing a 
professor's room. The Fraternity revived and intensified the 
alumni's interest for the college. 

Except for the dislocation caused by the Great War, the 
continuing record of the chapter has been uneventful until re- 
cently. As nearly as can be ascertained, Zeta furnished sixty 
men for the army, navy and aviation corps of the United States 
during the war. Most of these saw service in the American 
Expeditionary Force, Major Frederick A. Rupp, of the Medi- 
cal Corps being doubtless of the earliest class, 1897, to enter 
the service. Lieut. Henry C. Welker, 1902, who died at the 
Walter Reed Hospital, Washington, D. C, having been in- 
valided home from- France, was the only one of the chapter 
to lose his life in defense of democracy. After the establish- 
ment of the Students Army Training Corps, the active members 
lived in the barracks with the rest of the students, and the 
house was practically disused from September, 1918, to Janu- 
ary, 1919. It was a difficult period for the chapter, but it 
was decided to keep up the chapter house as long as possible. 
A portion of the interest of the Zeta Chapter House Fund 
was of great help at this time, in tiding over the financial diffi- 
culty. The fifteen members in the S. A. T. C. kept the spirit 
alive, and even initiated new men. At last, in September, 



320 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

1919, the long-awaited consummation was accomplished of 
securing as its own the house which had been rented by the 
chapter for eight years. The alumni and officers of the House 
Fund agreed to purchase the house at 558 West James Street 
for $7,500.00, and paid about $1,000.00 for improvements. 
A mortgage was executed for a portion of the purchase price. 
Zeta now rejoices in the possession of its own house, after 
nearly twenty -five years of endeavor; and it was fortunate that 
the house was taken, as the chapter would otherwise have been 
homeless, since another college organization was about to buy 
it. So Zeta can welcome to its house as well as to its heart 
every Phi Kapp Avho may visit Lancaster.

Eta Chapter 

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. 



Instituted December 31, A. D. 1854 



TAYLOR BEATTIE 



History of Eta Chapter 

Eta Chapter was organized through the efforts of Robert 
H. Stirling, of the Beta Chapter at Princeton, who entered the 
University of Virginia, with authority to constitute a chapter. 
He, with Taylor Beattie, organized the chapter December 31, 
1854. Phi Kappa Sigma was the first college fraternity to 
enter the university, then the most influential in the South. 
The chapter was well established and has maintained a leading 
position ever since its institution. The original charter, 
though yellow with age, is still well preserved among the 
archives. 

During the years 1854—61 the university was very pros- 
perous and each year brought an increase in the number of 
students, and the chapter prospered with the university. The 
records for the first three years are not in existence, and the 
places where the early meetings were held are unknown. It 
is supposd they were held in the rooms of the members. 

In 1855 the membership increased to such an extent that 
a committee was appointed to procure a meeting place and to 
draft a set of by-laws ; the latter provided for entertainment 
of a literary character, debates and original essays. Fines 
were imposed for neglect of duty. The members seemed to 
have taken a great interest in their literary efforts, as the 
reading of the essays occupied over an hour, and there were 
very few excuses or fines. 

The hall had not as yet been secured, and the meetings 
were first held in Brother Beattie's rooms, which was No. 1 
Blue Cottage, and just across from the university. 

In November, 1856, the efforts to secure a permanent 
meeting place were successful and a room was obtained in the 
Monticello House in Charlottesville, about a mile from the 
university. The chapter now prospered more than ever before, 
and by December they were compelled to procure two rooms

and have them made into one large apartment in order to 
accommodate their members. From 1857- the records were 
kept in a large journal, which is still in possession of the 
chapter. In 1858 new quarters were procured. This hall 
was on a cross street about one hundred yards from the 
Charlottesville post office. It was neatly and comfortably 
fitted up. The meetings were held weekly and generally lasted 
about four hours. Five or six associates from Delta, Epsilon, 
Kappa, Lambda and Mu chapters affiliated with the Eta, and 
in the following year several additions were made to the roll. 
The approach of the Civil War disintegrated the chapter 
entirely, and the members entered the army, many of whom 
became prominent in that memorable struggle. Many brethren 
met face to face on the field of battle, Union and Confederate, 
but loyalty to Phi Kappa Sigma never faltered, as the follow- 
ing incident, one of many, indicates : Brother King, of Eta, 
wrote that he was made a prisoner in September of 1861 and 
met a brother Phi Kap (Dr. William F. Goodwin, of Epsilon, 
then a surgeon in the Union Army), who was as kind as he 
could be in relieving his wants and in making him comfortable. 
He wrote. " I have never lost sight for a moment the prin- 
ciples of our old Fraternity, and though I was a rebel in the 
fullest acceptation of that term, I have never been any the less 
a Phi Kap." It was not until the autumn of 1872, through the 
untiring efforts of Brother Leroy S. Edwards, that on Thurs- 
day, the 26th day of September, the chapter was reorganized. 
In June, 1866, Brother Edwards had been informed by a mem- 
ber of another fraternity that an unsuccessful effort had been 
made by one or two Phi Kaps who had returned to the univers- 
ity, after four years' service in the Confederate Army, to revive 
Eta, and further that a number of the best men then at the 
university had joined in this move. However, nothing came of 
it, and in 1870 Brother Edwards* met Brother Woolsey John- 
son, of Beta, in New York. They had not met each other since 
1860, but this lapse of time had not lessened their interest in 
Phi Kappa Sigma. Brother Johnson urged the reorganization 
of Eta, and soon after Brother Ferriere, then Grand Alpha, 
wrote to inquire if Eta could be revived. The opportunity

offered and by authority of the Grand Chapter, Brother Ed- 
wards initiated in Richmond, D'Arcy Paul Morton, then a stu- 
dent at the university, and on his return to Charlottesville he, 
assisted by Brothers Jacob Michaux, of Powhatan County, 
Va., and Benjamin Whiteley, Jr., of Baltimore, soon placed 
Eta upon a firm foundation. The fortunes of the Fraternity 
could not have been placed in the keeping of worthier men. 
For a number of years the members held their meetings in a 
building outside the college grounds and later the chapter 
moved to a cottage in the immediate vicinity of the lawn of the 
university campus. 

In 1908 a gradual expansion forced the chapter to seek 
more commodious quarters, and it rented a brick house on Daw- 
son's Row where it remained until 1911, when its present home 
was occupied. The Eta chapter house is the first fruit of the 
national Endorsement Fund, and represents contributions from 
all chapters of the Fraternity, those from the old Dominion 
predominating in their subscriptions. The house is most com- 
modious, thoroughly equipped and in architectual harmony 
with the colonial buildings of the University. 

Old Eta has produced many distinguished alumni, among 
them a United States Senator from Louisiana, a Brigadier- 
General of the United States Army, a United States Judge in 
Alabama, a Chief Justice of California, a Bishop of the Protes- 
tant Episcopal Church, a Solicitor General of the United 
States, jurists of various state courts, and many others well 
known in the different professions. With a home the best at 
the university, her future is bright with promise of renewed 
prosperity.

History of Theta Chapter 

This chapter was founded the 1st of June, 1855, through 
the instrumentality of Charles W. Ross, of the Beta Chapter. 
At the time the charter for Centenary College was granted an 
epidemic of yellow fever was raging in Jackson, La., where 
the college was located, which caused a general dispersion 
of the students and prevented a complete organization of the 
chapter. But through the nursing care of Johnson F. Mc- 
Kneely, of the Eta, it soon became prosperous. In December, 
1856, there were eighteen members. Their place of meeting 
was reported to be most suitable and secret. They subse- 
quently had a fine hall, for which they paid $30.00 rent each 
session of the college year. Their badges were made in New 
Orleans and had silver skulls. In 1858 they had no hall. Dur- 
ing this year several of the members who left college and resided 
in East Baton Rouge Parish, La., made an effort to form what 
they called a " Vagabond " chapter. They sent forward a peti- 
tion to the Alpha Chapter for a charter, setting forth in glow- 
ing terms the prospects of forming such an organization, but 
the permission was not granted. 

The advent of several new fraternities, about this time, 
seriously affected the prosperity of the chapter, and this, 
coupled with an outbreak of smallpox in December of I860, 
caused a stampede among the students, which almost anni- 
hilated the chapter. The faculty had to suspend college exer- 
cises before the termination of the session. Upon the re- 
sumption of duties in the autumn, only three members comprised 
the chapter. 

In 1860 they held meetings every two weeks on Friday and 
had two essays and an oration delivered by members elected for 
that purpose. They had their hall in a two-story brick house 
over the Roman Catholic Church. 

The chapter upon the approach of the war became disin-

tegrated and adopted resolutions to the effect that " this Fra- 
ternity shall be one of white men and white men only," and sent 
them to the convention with the threat, that if they did not 
pass, the Theta would secede. 

It was from this chapter, through the efforts of Brothef 
James W. Barrow, that the Phi Kappa Sigma College was 
brought into existence. In 1859 Brother Barrow moved to 
Monticello, Ark., and agitated the idea of founding a school at 
that place. He first obtained a charter from the State Legis- 
lature, and the act of incorporation was passed at the Twelfth 
Session of the General Assembly at Little Rock, entitled: " An 
Act to incorporate the Phi Kappa Sigma Male College." 
This act was approved February £1, 1859. (See page 249, 
Act No. 194. Acts passed at the Twelfth Session of the Gen- 
eral Assembly of the State of Arkansas, Little Rock, Ark.) 
The " college " was a two-story frame building, with the char- 
acters 3> K % inscribed on the walls, and was designed to ac- 
commodate two hundred students. It was the first institu- 
tion in the State of Arkansas to offer collegiate education. 
While the charter describes the incorporators as " fratres of 
the Phi Kappa Sigma College " none of them was a member of 
the Fraternity. Brother Barrow was not an incorporator, 
although the moving spirit in the foundation of the institution 
and its only president. After being in operation about two 
years, the building was used by the Confederate government 
as a storehouse for supplies, and was destroyed by fire during 
the raid of the Federal troops through that section in 1864.

History of Iota Chapter 

In 1853 several students at Columbia College (now Uni- 
versity) feeling that there were no fraternities in the college 
that they would willingly join, concluded to form a local society 
of their own on a more select principle. There were many 
resident members of the Alpha Delta Phi in New York, who 
urged them to apply for a charter from their society. They 
did so, and nearly two years having elapsed before any action 
was taken in the matter, they became disgusted at the delay, 
and just as an offer of initiation was proffered by that f rater- 
nity, they became acquainted with Dr. S. B. Wylie Mitchell, 
the founder of Phi Kappa Sigma, and, already knowing sev- 
eral members of the Alpha Chapter, they resolved to become Phi 
Kaps. On the 10th of November, 1855, the Iota Chapter was 
instituted by Dr. Mitchell and Joseph Kay Caldwell, of the 
Alpha Chapter, in the fifth story of the New York Hotel. 

The lodge rooms were subsequently located in Room No. 
20, 483 Broadway, and were large, commodious and handsomely 
furnished. Most of the fraternities at Columbia had their 
rooms on this street, and while an attempt was made to keep 
the locality secret, it soon became known to the lady friends of 
the members, who took a great interest in the chapter and pre- 
sented to it several fine oil paintings. 

In October, 1857, they held meetings in Florence's Hotel, 
but subsequently moved to new rooms, and ones that gave gen- 
eral satisfaction, in the third story of No. 763 Broadway, which 
were said to be worthy of the increasing dignity of the Iota 
Chapter. In April of the following year these quarters were 
given up for the reason that they were not permitted to sing 
their songs as enthusiastically as they wished and were fre- 
quently desired to restrain their applause. This they could not 
do and outlined plans to occupy rooms on Madison Square on 
the corner of Broadway and Twenty-third Street. This plan 

429 



430 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

fell through and the chapter became domiciled in a small but 
extremely cosy and convenient apartment at No. 54* Twelfth 
Stret, two doors from Broadway, third story left hand door at 
the head of the stairs. The directions for the approach to 
those rooms to members, other than those belonging to the Iota 
Chapter, were very explicit, owing to the fact that the Delta 
Phis had their rooms just overhead, though they entered their 
room from Broadway and by a separate staircase. 

The chapter always celebrated the 19th of October, the 
anniversary of the founding of the Fraternity, with becoming 
dignity. Speeches were made, songs were sung, and toasts 
drunk to " Our Fraternity " and " The Day We Celebrate." 
In 1859 the chapter adopted a regalia which was reported to 
be very simple, " merely a royal purple velvet ribbon." 

A Bible presented to the chapter did duty as a support to 
the Skull, being always opened at the 133d Psalm, which begins, 
" Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell 
together in unity." 

In March, 1860, a fire broke out in the building occupied 
by the chapter in the room adjoining the lodge. The brethren 
stood ready to take out the big box of archives with the other 
" Lares and Penates." The Delta Phis came pelting down the 
stairs with their big box full of " mysteries," over which they 
posted a strong guard. The fire was soon put out, with a 
trifling damage. 

In May, 1860, the chapter moved to the top story, Room 
26, southwest corner Broadway and Twenty-first street, where 
they remained until 1866. The chapter was exceedingly pros- 
perous and the membership in the different fraternities in Col- 
umbia College stood in January, 1862, as follows: Delta Phi, 
13 ; Delta Psi, 8 ; Psi Epsilon, 10 ; Phi Kappa Sigma, 17. The 
contest between the several fraternities in 1863 for commence- 
ment honors was very keen. The oration on the occasion was 
delivered by a Phi Kap with great success " amid thunders of 
applause and showers of roses." 

In May, 1863, the chapter again moved their quarters to 
new rooms on the south corner of Washington Place and Broad- 
way, and the situation was the best they could wish for. 



HISTORY OF IOTA CHAPTER. 431 

In 1864 a " Gazette " was published, Addison W. Champ- 
ney being its editor. The hall of the chapter in December, 
1865, was in Room 26, northwest corner of Broadway and 
Twenty-first street. During the years 1868 and 1869, the 
chapter dwindled in membership, and initiated only one man in 
the Class of 1870. The chapter no longer occupied rooms, 
held no meetings, and came to an inglorious end by the gradua- 
tion of its members. 

The chapter was re-established in 1905 through the efforts 
of Brothers Waldemar Eric Metzenthin, of Zeta, and Charles 
D. Tomkies, of Mu (who were at that time graduate students 
at Columbia), with the very able assistance of the New York 
Alumni Chapter, of which Brother William McClure, Epsilon, 
'66, was then president. The charter members were initiated at 
a meeting held at the Hotel Marie Antoinette on April 9, 1905. 
The ceremony was conducted by Brother Stevenson H. Walsh, 
Past Grand Alpha, assisted by the Grand Beta, Brother John 
P. Baer. Large delegations from the New York Alumni Chap- 
ter, and from Philadelphia and Baltimore attended, and it will 
probably be conceded that the meeting lacked nothing of the 
hilarity of the ancient chapter. 

Re-established Iota's existence has been reasonably pros- 
perous from the beginning. Meetings were held at the rooms 
of various members until September, 1905, when the chapter 
rented the five-story house, 544 West One Hundred and Thir- 
teenth Street. 

It was not long before the Chapter found that rented quar- 
ters were not so desirable as quarters owned in fee. Thereupon 
a committee of which Oscar R. Houston, Iota, '04, was Chair- 
man and Carl Amend, Iota, '08, was Secretary, investigated the 
situation. It was found that the plans for the development of 
the Columbia University campus provided for the erection of 
buildings on the south side of South Field in such a manner 
that there would be an open space between affording a clear 
vista from the center of the block on One Hundred and four- 
teenth Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway 
through to the imposing library donated by Seth Low and the 
statue of Alma Mater. Negotiations were then commenced 



432 PHI KAPPA SIGMA FRATERNITY. 

which terminated in the purchase by the New York Chapter 
House Committee of the present Chapter House at No. 536 
West 114th Street for $33,000., of which $28,000. remained on 
mortgage. 

The Chapter was handicapped seriously by the lack of a 
strong alumni membership caused by the non-existence of the 
Chapter for some thirty years prior to 1905 and it had to com- 
pete with many fraternities, which, though younger in point of 
years, had existed continuously and thus had strong graduate 
bodies. Handicaps, however, never daunted the Iota spirit. 
The Chapter was strongly represented on the campus in athle- 
tics and in literary and musical activities. Detailed reference 
to such would be out of place but those Brothers who follow 
the News Letters will be familiar with the important part the 
men of Iota Chapter have played in the student life at Columbia. 
Financially, though' it seemed always to be in difficulty, the 
Chapter nevertheless paid its bills ; carrying charges on the 
house were paid when due until the United States took part in 
the World War in 1917. 

When a state of war was declared to exist, the men of 
Iota Chapter, every last one of them, responded to a call su- 
perior to that of fraternity, and offered themselves in various 
capacities to their Country. Many of the Brothers served on 
the field of battle. Some served in various branches of the 
Navy and a few were kept on this side of the Atlantic, but all 
served and gave their best. It is with heartfelt sorrow that we 
here record the loss of our Brother, Lieutenant Chester B. 
Winans, Iota, '17, killed while raiding a Boche machine gun 
nest. 

During the trying times following our entry into the War, 
a few of the Alumni for a while maintained the house, but soon 
these too responded to the call to arms and the house was left 
vacant save for the presence of a few outsiders who boarded 
there. Naturally the Chapter fell into arrears in its rent to 
the New York Chapter House Committee and the latter in turn 
was compelled to default on its interest and tax payments. 
Several other fraternities were confronted with similar diffi- 
culties and some of them closed their doors. Iota held on in 



HISTORY OF IOTA CHAPTER. 433 

the hope that it would be able to pull through, but finally the 
holder of the mortgage, a trustee representing several charitable 
institutions, was compelled to foreclose and the house was 
decreed to be sold. 

When it was seen that it was no longer possible for the 
New York Chapter House Committee to retain title to the 
property, a committee was formed consisting of Brothers Jo- 
seph Stier, Gamma, '80, George W. Tucker, Iota, '05, Ells- 
worth H. Mish, Epsilon, '09, Charles A. J. Gachot, Jr., Iota, 
'16, Walter P. Pfeiffer, Iota, '16, and Welles L. Allen, Iota, 
'10. This committee with the loyal cooperation of the New 
York Alumni Chapter and of numerous alumni of other chapters 
as well as those of Iota, secured subscriptions to the extent of 
nearly $10,000., against which were issued certificates of pro 
rata ownership in the equity of the house which was to be 
purchased at the foreclosure sale by a new corporation known 
as the 536 West 114th Street Corporation. The house was 
repurchased at the sale for $26,750, and a plan for increasing 
the equity therein has been devised which insures to the Fra- 
ternity at large the permanence of a chapter house in the world's 
largest city. 

During the early morning of November 20, 1919, the 
house was badly damaged in the living room, dining room 
and hall on the first floor by a fire of unknown origin. Exit 
from the house by the stairs and front door was cut off by 
the flames and the brothers were compelled to make good their 
escape by means of the roof. The prompt arrival of the fire 
department, summoned by one of the brothers, who ran to the 
fire house in his pajamas, saved the house from becoming 
a total loss. The lower floor which had just recently been 
renovated was badly damaged and some of the floor timbers 
had to be replaced. The insurance, however, was sufficient 
to offset the damage, and since the repairs the house is in fine 
condition.

History of Kappa Chapter 

Kappa Chapter was founded on July 1, 1856. Emory and 
Henry College, situated in Southwestern Virginia, gave promise 
at that time of becoming one of the leading institutions of the 
South. From its location it drew students both from the 
Atlantic States and from those west of the Alleghenies. 
Frank S. Findlay, of the Epilson Chapter, visited the college, 
and it was through his efforts that the Epsilon Chapter was 
authorized to form the new chapter. Accordingly, the Alpha 
of that chapter initiated by letter George V. Litchfield, who, 
on the above date, signed and returned the obligation. He 
then associated with himself the others who became the chapter 
founders, and who were initiated in the latter part of Novem- 
ber. Brother Litchfield subsequently became president of the 
Virginia and Tennessee Coal and Iron Company, and one of the 
foremost men of the South. 

Writing in 1910, Judge Patrick Rose Taliaferro, of 
Georgia, one of the founders, said of the chapter: 

" The rules adopted for membership were very exclusive, 
which rendered the order quite unpopular with the student body 
as well as with some of the professors. Family connection and 
good character were closely scrutinized and, under severe tests, 
many were ineligible ; still there were many who never made 
application, being unfriendly to a secret order. We were con- 
stantly under surveillance by the faculty and were only per- 
mitted to live as a matter of grace." 

As the chapter existence was necessarily sub rosa, its cor- 
respondence with the other chapters was carried on by the de- 
vice of having its mail addressed to Samuel Snooks, Esq., a 
supposititious person, at Glade Springs, Va., the next station to 
Emory. As the postmaster at Glade Springs was a Phi Kap, 
the plan was easily carried out. 

Under the conditions described by Judge Taliaferro the 

471

chapter lived until 1861, when, in common with all the Southern 
chapters, it disappeared in the vortex of Civil War. Prac- 
tically all of its members saw service in the army and nearly all 
of these were commissioned officers. The great majority were 
on the Southern side, but one of the chapter, James P. Brown- 
low, a member of the well-known Unionist family of Eastern 
Tennessee, became Colonel of the First Tennessee Cavalry, 
U. S. Volunteers, and subsequently Brigadier-General, TJ. S. 
Volunteers. 

The termination of the war found the chapter extinct and 
the college in straitened circumstances, so that a revival of 
the chapter was not attempted. The surviving members, how- 
ever, continued their loyalty to the Fraternity and exchanged 
numerous letters. Their stationery and cards contained a cut 
of the badge, and it so happened in reconstruction days that 
several of such letters and cards, falling into the hands of recon- 
struction officials, were the cause of the arrest of the writers 
and recipients as alleged members of the Ku Klux Klan. It 
was not until the matter was brought to the attention of more 
intelligent officers that the matter was satisfactorily adjusted.

History of Kappa Chapter 

The Kappa Chapter, Lake Forest College, saw its incep- 
tion and brief history during the year 1893, 

Its short life permits little chronicling beyond sketching 
the fact of its birth and the cause of its early demise. 

During the early spring of 1893, following preliminary 
negotiations, six Lake Forest men were initiated into the Phi 
Kappa Sigma Fraternity by the Upsilon Chapter, and became 
the charter members of Kappa, the charter being issued shortly 
afterward. The initiation was held in the rooms of the North- 
western chapter at Evanston. Regular meetings were held and 
an already existing close fellowship among the chapter's mem- 
bers was strengthened in unity of interest and action. Several 
joint meetings were held with the Northwestern chapter, and at 
least one alumni dinner was attended in Chicago during the 
short time the chapter existed. 

Four men were graduated with the Class of '93 and others 
left college on account of the prevailing financial conditions ; 
the decreased attendance of students occasioned by the panic 
caused the few members who, remained to conclude that it was 
inopportune to undertake the upbuilding of the Fraternity in 
Lake Forest at that time, and the charter was surrendered. 

The men who formed the Kappa Chapter were the most 
representative and progressive students in Lake Forest at that 
time and were the dominant factor in all the college activities. 
They have taken honorable and successful positions in their 
several fields since graduation, and while their life as a chapter 
was so brief as to preclude marked affiliation with the great 
body of the Fraternity, they have always cherished the benefits 
of its fellowship and held its teachings in high esteem. 

No lack of loyalty, but rather the adversity of disjointed 
times, caused the early passing into history of an enthusiastic 
and promising chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma.

Lambda Chapter 

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA 
CHAPEL HILL, NORTH CAROLINA 



Instituted November 12, A. D. 1856 



LOUIS MEREDITH JIGGITTS, Jr. 
EUSTACE HUNT 
NICHOLAS BIDDLE SHANNON 
AUGUSTINE BURKET WASHINGTON 
DAVID SHORT GOODLOE 
EDWARD TURNER SYKES 



History of Lambda Chapter 

The Lambda Chapter was instituted in the University of 
North Carolina on the 12th of November, A. D. 1856. Owing 
to the loss of the records incident to the Civil War, it is not 
known what circumstances led to the creation of the chapter, 
other than that application had been made on November 4, 
1856, to the Beta Chapter. The founders were Louis Mere- 
dith Jiggitts, Jr., Eustace Hunt, Nicholas Biddle Shannon, 
Augustine Burket Washington, David Short Goodloe, Edward 
Turner Sykes. Of these Hunt was endeared to all by his kind, 
generous disposition and moral usefulness. Jiggitts, like Good- 
loe, lost an arm in the Civil War, and both died early from 
their wounds. Shannon, a giant in intellect, as well as stature, 
died soon after graduation. Washington was killed at the 
battle of Missionary Ridge. Sykes, a brilliant, successful 
lawyer, surviving the vicissitudes of war, full of honors, alone 
remains, a fine sample of the founders of the old Lambda, those 
skilful architects who " builded better than they knew." He 
was a lifelong law partner with the lamented Humphries and 
instrumental in founding the Xi Chapter. Humphries and 
Goodloe founded the Nu Chapter at Lebanon, Tenn. It is im- 
possible to describe how the little Spartan band that first un- 
furled Lamba's banner at the University of North Carolina in 
its golden age defended with heroic courage the noble cause of 
Phi Kappa Sigma during her fierce struggle for existence there. 
With seven fraternities established at the university before the 
Lambda was organized, the young chapter encountered much 
opposition, and being very exclusive in selection, her numbers 
were never large. When there were over four hundred and fifty 
students on the college rolls it never numbered over twenty- 
five. The men were always high-toned gentlemen and took high 
rank in the university. Thus the chapter was uniformly pros- 
perous until the advent of the Civil War, when practically every

student went into the army, and with the graduating class of 
sixty-one Lambda's chapter organization was broken up and 
her star that rose at first, " obscurely bright, set * * * 
one unclouded blaze of living light ! " 

The chapter was reinstituted on April 26, 1877. To 
Joseph Clay Powell the Fraternity is indebted for the revival. 
Although the chapter was revived sub rosa, it was done under 
most auspicious circumstances, as there were no other fraterni- 
ties there. It had the selection of the most desirable material 
from the whole student body as her own, as the subsequent 
history of the membership in the varied walks of life well shows. 
Thus for several years the chapter was very prosperous. Then 
untoward conditions forced the necessity of applying for recog- 
nition from the trustees of the university ; the ban against fra- 
ternities was then removed ; others rushed in, with consequent 
strong rivalry in opposition. Lambda, however, always main- 
tained the personnel of her membership on a high plane to the 
end. Nevertheless, the presence of so many other fraternities, 
combined with a decrease in the number of eligible men at the 
university in the early nineties, and the unfortunate failure of 
most of the chapter to return to college, reduced the active 
membership to a few men for several years. To these troubles 
was added a rule preventing men joining a fraternity until the 
middle of Sophomore year. Finally but one man remained 
in college, and the unequal struggle terminated in the regret- 
table loss of the chapter. 

In the " History of the University of North Carolina," 
Vol. 2, page 781, by Kemp P. Battle, A.M., LL.D., it is stated: 

" The Lambda Chapter was flourishing from 1856 to 
1862. It had a very honorable career. In the Confederate 
service it had two Colonels, two Majors, twelve Captains, three 
Surgeons, eight Lieutenants, two Sergeants, and ten Privates. 
Of its members nine were killed in battle. Four others died 
in service. One was a member of Congress, three were State 
Senators, three Judges of the Federal or State Superior Courts, 
one was a Probate Judge, and two were Professors of colleges. 

After the reopening in 1875, this Fraternity was the first 
to be reinstated, but the local Chapter has not been in exist- 



HISTORY OF LAMBDA CHAPTER. 489 

ence now for many years. Its members of the seventies and 
eighties were, most of them, leaders then and are leaders now." 

Lambda has the distinction of having the first chapter 
house in the Fraternity, it being a small wooden building erected 
in 1887 and used by the chapter until its disintegration, when 
the property reverted to the university. 

Among Lambda's alumni are men prominent in all phases 
of activity. She has given to the country many soldiers, 
lawyers, physicians and educators, among them the President 
of the University of Virginia, the Protestant Episcopal Bishop 
of East Carolina, a Judge of the United States Court in Cali- 
fornia, a Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina, and 
of the Superior Court of Washington.

Note. — The name of the University of Louisiana, at which Mu Chapter 
was founded in 1858, was changed to Tulane University of Louisiana in 

1884. 



History of Mu Chapter 

Through the combined efforts of our late Brothers 
Anthony Sambola and Peter C. James, of Theta, and William 
S. Vaughan and Johnson F. McNeely, Mu Chapter was estab- 
lished at the old University of Louisiana (now Tulane Univer- 
sity) on January 14, 1858, and the initiations were held in the 
office of W. S. Vaughan on the evening of the same day the 
charter was received. Six members were initiated. 

During the life of this original chapter twenty-six men 
were initiated and twelve others affiliated. The chapter held 
weekly meetings and had many interesting features. Most of 
the old records are in the possession of the present chapter and 
furnish an interesting history of fraternal interest over sixty 
years back. The regular order of business included the read- 
ing of essays, poems, addresses, debates and contributions to an 
oracle. The oracle was a tin box in which anonymous litera- 
ture was deposited at any time and was consulted at meetings. 
So many contributions were received that they had to be classi- 
fied before the meetings. One member contributed his 
" monthly wit," another his " weekly oracle by George Dime- 
worth," and others contributed by the " Quarterly Poet " ap- 
peared. 

It is to be remembered that the above all happened between 
the years 1858 and I860. The Civil War came and on Decem- 
ber 14, 1860, a resolution was adopted to appoint a committee 
to frame an address to the chapters concerning the course to be 
pursued in case of a dissolution of the Union and to send a'copy 
to each chapter and several copies to the convention then about 
to be held in New York City. The war put an end to the 
activities of the Southern chapters, and Mu shared the fate with 
the others. 

The university buildings were seized upon by the United 
States troops and converted into a school and all the furniture, 

513

ornaments and most of the papers and records of the chapter 
were plundered and confiscated. Fortunately, just when the 
city was captured, the tin box containing a few valuable papers 
was rescued and placed in the house of A. J. Lewis for safe 
keeping. 

Today there remains out of the thirty men who guided the 
destinies of early Mu but one survivor, Brother Alfred Joshua 
Lewis, class of 1860. 

On February 16, 1867, an informal meeting (records show 
five members present) was held in an effort to reorganize Mu 
Chapter, but it was not until November 23, 1893, that a re- 
organization of the chapter was effected, and this was brought 
about through the efforts of Anthony Sambola. The life of 
this chapter was short and few records of its work are on hand. 
Some fifteen men from the Law and Medical Departments of 
Tulane University were initiated during the two years during 
which it existed. 

Fortunately, however, both during the period of inactivity 
from the Civil War to 1893 and following the disintegration of 
the second chapter, the charter was not withdrawn, but remain- 
ing; outstanding; in the custodv of Brother Sambola. In 1900 
he saw the opportunity of again raising the standard, and 
accordingly, on December 3, 1900, accomplished the revival by 
the initiation of Louis C. Datz, Philip W. Bohne, Frank E. 
Powell, Jr., and Marcel Garsaud, and thus Mu Chapter began 
her third and, it is to be believed, permanent career of activity. 

In 1908 the semi-centennial of the chapter was celebrated. 
Let us hope that another fifty years will see a record without 
the interruptions which have characterized the first half cen- 
tury.

History of Nu Chapter 

Nu Chapter was founded by William Washington Hum- 
phries, Jr., and David Short Goodloe, of the Lambda Chapter, 
on May 10, 1859. They wrote to the Alpha Chapter just after 
organization that their expenses procuring and furnishing a 
hall for the sum of $100 per annum, getting pins, etc., had 
fallen pretty heavily upon them. 

The membership was confined almost exclusively to the 
students in the Law Department, owing to the fact that 
Humphries and Goodloe were law students. They, however, did 
take in some men from the College Department. 

Their badges were of gold with white enameled letters. 
The chapter was short-lived, and in March, 1861, they were 
forced to suspend, so few students being in attendance upon 
college duties owing to the troublous times just setting in. 
" The whole South was in a perfect blaze," writes one of their 
members, and he says, " If ever I meet a Phi Kap on the field of 
battle, or anywhere else, I shall always extend to him the hand 
of a brother." 

Efforts were made to revive the chapter in December, 1866, 
but they were futile. The charter and papers were lost during 
the war.

History of Xi Chapter 

Xi, the last but one of the ante-bellum Southern chapters, 
was founded at the University of Mississippi by Edward Turner 
Sykes, of Lambda, who entered the Law Department of the 
University of Mississippi in the fall of 1858, and at once gath- 
ered together the nucleus of a proposed chapter, to whom a 
charter was granted in the following year, and the chapter in- 
stitued on December 2, 1859. The chapter had a commodious 
and suitable hall in the second story of a then new building in 
the town of Jackson, adjacent to the university, and was the 
only fraternity that had permanent quarters. The charter was 
framed and hung in the hall. Four fraternities were already 
there: Delta Kappa Epsilon, Delta Psi, Sigma Chi and Phi 
Kappa Psi. Despite this fact and also notwithstanding the 
customary faculty opposition of the time, men of high per- 
sonnel were obtained for the chapter. Its active career, how- 
ever, was short, on account of the war. Its delegates appeared 
at but one convention, that of I860 in New York, and by 1862 
its members had all left college. Of the sixteen men initiated at 
Xi all entered the Confederate service. 

The campaigns of 1862 and 1863 raged throughout Mis- 
sissippi, the university was closed and the archives of Xi were 
secreted for safety and later burned, so that nothing is known 
of its records. Later the turbulent political conditions in Mis- 
sissippi during the years succeeding the war rendered it impos- 
sible to revive the chapter at that time, and no effort was made 
subsequently.

History of Omicron Chapter 

This chapter was established b} 7 the Delta Chapter through 
their members, Joseph Venable Morton, Winchester Hall Stuart 
and William Francis Singleton, all of whom were residents of 
Kentucky. Brothers Stuart and George C. Thompson, also of 
Delta, presented the application November 8, 1859, from Centre 
College, Danville, Ky., for a charter, and the chapter was in- 
stituted in January, 1860. The charter and seal were sent 
them from Philadelphia, but were burned while lying in the 
express office in a general conflagration of the town. 

The students composing the chapter were reported by one 
of the professors to be " the flower of the college." 

This chapter had a short life, being disintegrated by the 
coming on of the war, and a letter written on the 19th of April, 
1861, reports that they are " all leaving on account of the war." 

During the war the college property was in
